Vincent Stracquadanio

Vincent Stracquadanio’s paintings are liminal spaces where ghostly forms depart and float through dark foreboding mists, searching for some sense of self or a long-lost better half. Fiery glowing hands reach out from portals and arches to probe this dreamlike miasma, always leaving unsatisfied. Expressions of grief and yearning permeate Stracquadanio’s work via rendered spaces that flatten or expand with patterns, gestural abstraction, or archetypical forms. Drawing his imagery from Sicilian folkloric traditions, Etruscan frescos, and Giallo horror films, Stracquadanio rarely puts moments of solidity in his work, expressing a state of longing and, ultimately, a desire for change.
