Guests will say "Whoa that’s cool?," "What colors!" and "What is it exactly?" when you hang an abstract on the wall. Abstract paintings, like a crescendo of a fireworks show engage and free us from structure and composition. They let us imagine and associate to things we try to put our finger on, but seemingly can’t seem to do. My favorite abstract artist, Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky once remarked, “I applied streaks and blobs of color onto the canvas with a palette knife and I made them sing with all the intensity I could.”
Blue Shadows. Watercolor on paper, 18x20. ©Accorsi Studios, 2004. Private Collection, New York.
This painting is entirely created from watercolor. To achieve this deep effect over 30 glazes of paint were applied over and over, until it seemed like stained glass.
The Comet. oil on canvas, 42 x 72 in. ©Accorsi Studios, 2013. $3,870
The Comet (above) is a roller coaster in Hershey Park where I spent a lot of my summers with my grandmother. This would be more in the genre of Abstract Realism (a realistic subject rendered in the artist’s style). I have two versions of this painting: 1) The wall sized painting depicted above 42 x 72 or a acrylic reprint which is 24” by 40” and much more affordable at $650.

Accorsi Studios is Expanding
A lot of fun things are happening in our studio - a new studio is finished construction, we’ve been working in video and film, and to keep up with the work, I’ve had to hire assistants. So now, there’s a staff. Security is headed by Sunny Rollins, my golden retriever.
Check out the YouTube Channel we are currently writing a script for a documentary short to be shot this summer. So, I’ll try and break free to send out updates and newsletters.
Thank you and Happy Spring!
