About The Artwork

Gentile, Italian-born, began his career as a graphic designer in Milan, Italy. He moved to the Boston area in the late 1960s and began painting full time in the early 1970s. Gentile currently paints in his studio adjacent to his house in Lynnfield, Massachusetts, where he lives with his wife, Ruth. His most recent work combines collage, Photoshop, and painting. The paintings vary in size, from 2 × 2 feet to the largest work; a group of 15 canvases measuring over 6 × 10 feet. Gentile's use of bold warm colors can be traced back to his Italian roots, while his work with computers is representative of today's tech-savvy audience. Gentile paints fractured areas of magazine collage peeking through a layer of color applied in Photoshop. This technique allows the viewer to identify subjects in the collage, but only if they take the time to look between the abstraction. "The initial response to the paintings is their apparent abstraction. One is absorbed by the play of high chroma colors, areas of bright red and yellow that with heat and energy push away from the supporting surface toward the viewer. ….." – Art Critic Charles Giuliano, Professor of art history, School of Art and Design at Suffolk University, Boston, MA.

Born in Prezza, Italy 1937. Have lived in the U.S.A. since 1966. I am married to an English lady and we have two children and two grandchildren so far. I built a studio attached to my house, it overlooks a beautiful lake and this is where I paint every day.After I graduated from art schools in Italy I worked as a Graphic disigner, in Italy and here in the States. Then shortly after settling here I returned to painting. Over the years my paintings developed from more traditional style to more contemporary, abstract based with some realistic elements. My inspiration comes from every day life, from magazines, newspapers and the internet.
