Mario Naves

Mario Naves has been a New York City based artist for 33 years, working primarily in acrylics on panel and linen. How does one encapsulate the variegated and vexing nature of experience through the tools of the painter’s craft? Using modernist means in the aim of transcending modernism’s limited scope of reference, Mario looks to the entirety of history and across disparate cultures in the hopes of channeling a sense of art’s sweep and density.
