Ceravolo
"The Silent Star" 46x38 on canvas

2010

US$2,500

About

"The Silent Star" by Ceravolo is inspired by Actress Louise Brooks. The unframed canvas measures 46x38". In this work Ceravolo has combined and image of his portrait painting of Louise Brooks with colorful cut out images of 3 dimensional shapes he has created. He then prints this one of a kind unique image on canvas with archival inks. I included an image of Ceravolo painting his original largescale oil on canvas of Louise Brooks in this listing, that large painting is sold but it is the painting that Ceravolo used an image of to print this one of a kind unique canvas. To create this unique work, Ceravolo first cuts free form shapes out of wood and then paints heavy textures and colors over the cut out shapes before photographing them. He then determines where he will position the shapes over his portrait of Louise Brooks to create depth and tension within the work. The final step is to combine the image of Louise Brooks with the colorful shapes and print them in this one of a kind work on canvas. The canvas is totally flat but the added shadows to the cutout shapes create a remarkable 3 dimensional depth to the art. Ceravolo's art came to popular attention when he was commissioned to create 5 large scale paintings of Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, Frank Zappa, Neil Young and Hall and Oates for the lobby of The Palladium Theatre in New York City. In addition to those, his paintings can be found in many influential corporate and private collections, including: ELTON JOHN, ROD STEWART, HUGH M. HEFNER, DAVID BRENNER, MONIQUE VAN VOOREN, WARNER BROS., RCA RECORDS AND SCHENLEY INDUSTRIES to name a few.
