John Robbolino Jr. – “The Power of Art”
March 12–April 03, 2021 – 10am to 5pm
View the dramatic, inspiring sculptural canvases of master artist John Robbolino Jr. at the Emillions Art showroom located 837 5th Avenue South in Naples, Suite 202.
The John Robbolino Jr. exhibition will be open to the public Tuesday thru Saturday, 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. through April 3rd by appointment.
Robbolino is acclaimed for his “alto-rilievo” or “high relief” sculpted, oversized canvases that utilize hand blown glass, metal and paint that arise from the background. The artist’s technique is adapted from antiquity and combines engineering and architecture similar to the work of Leonardo da Vinci, Leon Battista Alberti and Michelangelo.
Among the artwork exhibited at the event is Equestrian Equinox, a high relief piece that depicts the Roman chariot wheel with exploding hand-blown glass and metal. “The magnificent horses symbolize the Ferrari prancing horses and represent majestic power, opulence and elegance unmatched in today’s world,” Robbolino said.
John Robbolino Jr. was born in Lodi, New Jersey in 1957 to an Italian family. His talent emerged during a childhood of drawing and painting and later expanded to pen and ink, illustration and realism during his art education.
