Luciano Ventrone born in Rome in 1942, studied art at Rome’s Liceo Artistico and enrolled in an architecture progam in the mid-1960s. He ended his coursework, however, in 1968 in order to devote his time to painting. Throughout his career, he has explored the possibilities of sight and optics. By the 1980s, he developed this interest into a close reading of the details of his subjects. These paintings led to his signature style, characterized by brilliant lighting and meticulous representation.
It is Ventrone’s technique that grants his subjects an intense clarity. First, the artist carefully stages his still lifes and his figures under strong artificial lighting.  He then photographs them and paints from the photographs. This approach creates a kind of contemporary camera obscura, illuminating details that are not visible through ordinary sight….

Her hair was the color of water in winter, and her bones were so delicate! She hardly had any breasts at all. When she danced, men killed themselves, knowing they would never again see such beauty. She had four lovers in Kiev, each richer than the other, but her heart was so cold that she could hold ice in her mouth and it would never melt.
