As a master of contemporary impressionism, John Asaro is a rare artist – one whose work embodies the simultaneous precision and fluidity of the human form, and celebrates the endless characterization made possible by ever changing, ever present light. Known throughout the country for his distinctive and award-winning nudes and dancer series’, Asaro is currently recognized as a leading fine artist in his field; and this month, the Timmons Galleries is proud to announce Asaro’s premier San Diego exhibition as he prepares to take his work from here to the Santa Barbara Museum Exhibition, New York City and beyond.
Throughout his evolution from art student to professional illustrator to teacher and now full-time fine artist,
has remained deeply involved in the West Coast art scene; and over the last 35 years, his work has served as a testament to the artists’ pursuit of depth, honesty, feeling and meaning. In his upcoming Rancho Santa Fe Village exhibition, Asaro will present his most recent paintings from the “Adagio” series, which portrays the alternating movement and repose of ballet dancers. Asaro’s work captures the dancers’ life force, and depicts them in various poses of relaxation, performance, contemplation and passion. With a light-infused vibrant palette that uses complimentary colors and broad-brush strokes to create unique patterns, Asaro’s latest vision reveals the artist at his dramatic and evocative best. At 73 years old, Asaro has earned his stripes within the art community; and yet there is an enduring quality to his work – at once youthful, vibrant, classical and timeless – that makes his an eye for all seasons.
