"REPOSE" by Henry Asencio. A deceptively simple image of refined elegance and poise, Henry Asencio's "Repose" combines the artist's signature integration of the classical ideals of figurative painting with a unique, contemporary style revered in his work. As Asencio strives to personify his artistic notions and compulsion to paint, he passionately yearns to make each new work more expressive then the last. "Repose" is a dramatic interpretation of a simple gesture and a quiet state of being. The allure of solitude is transformed into a captivating image juxtaposed with tension and intrigue—solace in the midst of chaos. Symbolic of the approach to his art, the mystique of the female form builds the structure of each new painting. Asencio's use of color sets the mood and a fury of texture creates an urgency to elicit heart-felt emotion. Abstraction of subconscious thought and reality entwine to tell the artist's story. Freedom from responsibility, protection from the negative forces that can hold one captive...escapism...for the artist and viewer it is the ultimate intention in his evocative work of art. In essence, "Repose" seeks to find solace in the midst of chaos.
