Baroque Beauty
Classically trained artist Francesco Lombardo finds inspiration for his ethereal work from the Baroque and pentimento.
By Francesco Lombardo

“The aspect of Baroque art that I draw from most heavily is the intentional use of dynamic folds to be found in the clothing of both painted and sculpted figures,” he says. “I want to employ this aesthetic and combine it with pentimento to convey a similar sensation of spiritual force that is unique to my own work…My goal regarding painting is to instill in the viewer a sensation of abundant spirit, to impart vitality, whether in the form of euphoric rapture or brooding struggle.”

Lombardo’s most recent body of work, Quantum Baroque, is a marriage of these concepts with his “pop culture understanding of quantum physics and existing in more states than one.”
