Bert Antonio enjoys meticulously exploring themes that strike an emotional chord. He does so by creating series of mixed media compositions that are inspired by common themes, such as the quantitative yet mentally malleable length of a day. In his Calendar Series, Antonio incorporates identical compositional schemes and symbolic items into each piece, as with a wooden ruler to “measure” each day, so that he might more accurately express the minute differences that exist from day to day. The artist’s work has the feel of a calculated and satisfied obsession.
Antonio has exhibited his work in such spaces as The Rice-Polak Gallery in Provincetown, MA, Genovese/Sullivan Gallery in Boston, MA, The West Gallery in the Philippines, and The Arlington Center for the Arts, in Arlington, MA. Antonio is collected by both national and international corporations. Bert Antonio's work is on loan from the Genovese/Sullivan Gallery.
