Acclaimed for his sensual figurative paintings, contemporary artist Henry Asencio continues to merge his own dreams and visions into artistic inspiration and visual fantasy with his latest work titled, “Day Dream”.
Amidst the glow of the rising sun, Asencio’s muse sits delicately in a contemplative pose consumed in thought or reverie. Asencio’s choice of frantic hues serves to reflect a secret, burning desire. Has she awoken from a dream or yearning to awaken a dream of her own? Dreams are nothing more than wishes. The power of one’s daydreams or the passive thinking of quiet, subconscious desires is the basis in which great things can transpire. For what is a work of art other than a dream or a daydream expressed within a formal aesthetic.
Henry Asencio’s artistic talent lies within the power of his own subconscious translation. And just as he shares his beautiful visions with us, we are empowered to contemplate the fulfillment of our own hopes, wishes and desires.
