Bio: Carmine Acconcia’s approach to encaustic painting reveals his unique vision as an artist. The spontaneous quality of his paintings is the result of the way his brush- strokes manipulate the molten pigmented wax. The brilliance of his coloring and the diversity of textures and layers give the work a spatial connotation, suggesting without describing a playful use of the elements water, air, earth and fire within the composition.
His paintings captivate the eye and excite the imagination.
Native of Brazil, Mr.Acconcia has dedicated his life to the pursuit and study of art, primarily painting. Carmine has lived in San Francisco, California since the early 80’s, where he has actively developed major bodies of work. His paintings have been shown locally and abroad and are part of private collections. He has taught several painting workshops in Brazil and San Francisco.
