Nicola Samorì

Nicola Samorì’s beautiful, technically accomplished paintings are distorted renditions of Baroque works. Characterized by a dark palette, portentous and enigmatic, these portraits have a foreboding beauty compounded of extreme realism and surreal, subtle disturbance. Often the faces of the figures in these paintings are obscured with a surreal, milky veil or a tempestuous, boldly structured smear of gray.
