Vincent Donato

My creative process is constantly evolving as my compositions are based on how I feel in the initial moment of creating. I use different mediums and depending on what I am inspired to create, I employ a variety of materials; ink, pigments, graphite, plaster. I also use oil paint and wire for my larger sculptural work. 

My work has a special interest in mental health as I am influenced by my own demons and my search in finding a certain beauty in them. Roses are a keystone image in my compositions; they are souls that live and die, so I use them to represent life, love, death, and tragedy. Roses are strong, yet fragile, beautiful, yet covered in thorns. I paint them vertically to depict life, and horizontally to depict death. Beyond death, the horizontal roses represent the act of self-harm, mimicking the line of horizontal scars, as a form of self-reflection. My pieces are conceptual, abstract, visceral, and sculptural. While my style is wholly original, I find myself drawn to the work and aesthetic of artists like Francis Bacon and Alberto Giacometti.

"I wanted to create something that was fragile. As fragile as a rose. As fragile as life. As fragile as love. Looking to create something to appear visibly fragile & using the thin cotton bed sheet as a support medium representing a space where life, love, & death occurs."

"I've been using doors to depict all the experiences we go through in life. The open doors lead us to new beginnings. The closed doors represent past experiences. Using fragile pigments to paint the roses representing how fragile life is."
