Biography

Tess Barbato is a young, 21st century American realist oil painter whose work is conceptually driven. She possesses a larger than life vision that results in incredibly detailed portrayals of the most mundane of objects. 

 

Tess inherited her artistic sensibility from a long line of family artists. She graduated Summa Cum Laude in Fine Arts from Plymouth State University. Her lifelong struggle with dyslexia compelled her to use art as her preferred means of communication. And for Tess, communication has always been paramount. She is an artist with something to say, a master of delivery in the form of wry paradox.

 

Tess' paintings have been accepted for numerous juried exhibitions and have accumulated several awards and honors. Some of her recent showings have been in the 23rd International Juried Exhibition at Viridian Artists Inc. in New York City, with guest juror Chrissie Iles, curator of the Whitney Museum of American Art, in "Paradox: The Closest Point to Reality" at the Artlink Gallery in Miami, Florida for Art Basel Week and for “META: Art About Art” at Gallery 263 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with guest juror Camilo Alvarez. Her work also received Honorable Mentions from Middleton, Connecticut’s Gallore Gallery’s "2012 Junk or Genius International Exhibition” and their “2nd Annual Essie Awards.”

 

She is currently working out of her in-house studio in Worcester where she lives with her husband and two cats.
