ON VIEW AT 81C BEGINNING 4/2/22
Superfine is a retrospective fine art exhibition featuring an energetic and adventurous collection of paintings by Charlotte Amalie based artist Vincent Bambini. Showcasing Bambini’s larger creations encased in ornate frameworks handcrafted by the artist, Superfine represents several decades of production featuring mysterious social settings, wayward humans, and scenes intrinsically reminiscent of Henri Rousseau or Roy Lichtenstein. Bambini’s neo-pop flare and in your face appeal proves loud, brazen, and loving.

ARTIST STATEMENT :
“I work in series’. The continuation of it; the start, the middle, and the end. Sometimes they don’t end or haven’t ended. The themes chosen are an oscillating cycle of what is seen and known, sometimes unknown but I don’t think it’s never seen. In the end it is the visual appreciation and education of the audience and/or viewer. The series gives me the opportunity to obtain the progression of events while maintaining my favorites, the satisfaction of apprehending the continuation of a theme which changes in time and or ends, and to perform at different levels without interruption of any recourse.”
