CONCETTA ANTICO'S THE SALON OF ART 10TH ANNUAL STUDENT SHOW
Concetta speaks to her adoring students as they celebrate the 10th annual Student Show. She highlights the value of art and creativity in people's lives, noting particularly the great capacity it has to change lives, as well as to heal. Oil painting has been her passion for her entire life. Over her 20 year career at The Salon, she has personally inspired over 15,000 students. Her recent diagnosis as a tetrachromat with super vision further enhances her great capability to show the world in all its color and beauty. It is rare to find such qualities in one person, which is the hallmark of her success. She firmly believes that oil painting, or any other creative endeavor, is merely a skill to be learned and that everyone is inherently capable.

Concetta Antico a Tetrachromat Artist
"I preserve life's fleeting beauty & truth in my oil paintings by capturing the colors the creator intended us to see. My quest is to portray the essence and immediate energy I feel and the impressions of Earth's exquisiteness. Subjects speak from my canvas with visual conversations born of the human eye & bliss of the heart.
To capture life’s loveliness and sustain it in this reality, my works are limited to one sitting with faith that all my creations are sublime in their purest form, upon birth. My personal challenge therefore excludes amendments which would make originals substitutions. I commit to a pure and raw emotion technique upon inception.
My technical dialogue speaks of deft value, color, form & poetic brushstrokes, performed synchronistically in one act with heart... This command manifests visual stories onto my canvas, which generate a life force all their own.
View my art and know me. For what I saw, what stirred in my mind and filled my heart with joy will remain, forever.”
Oil Painting by Concetta K. Antico
Great news on the Tetrachromat testing! A science and technology foundation is considered superior, including art. We love the vividness of the colors in your work. We are disciples of your art and I believe your paintings will go up in value substantially, God willing, while you are still with us :-) . Thank you again for a wonderful evening and the opportunity to invest in your paintings.

Do you remember that day I sat with you as you painted plein aire - it was that lovely mission on the hills above San Diego? I remember marveling at all the colors you put into the painting - I could not see half of what you put in, and I just thought you made up the rest to make it a really great painting!? Now I see you were not kidding - no wonder your paintings are so colorful -- WOW - what a great way to live!! Wish I was one of the 2%-ers! That painting is one that is always up in whatever house I live in - one of my favorites - and I will not sell it, no matter how much up in price it goes - so there!"

Concetta Painting En Plein Air
Concetta's unique and expanded color perception due to tetrachromacy plays out in her work as a teacher and most vividly as an oil painter and artist. Whether in a studio class or during a plein air session, her students often remark how she accentuates and "sees" colors in the subject matter being painted that they cannot readily discern themselves. This ability to amplify what is just beyond our own vision is a gift that she generously shares, and it contributes to every student's technique and understanding in the use of color. Her work affords the student and collector alike an opportunity to see the world in a new way.
Each painting is a cacophony of color that harmoniously works and is credible to our perceptual sensibilities because she is able to take us to a world that we would not otherwise naturally see, or appreciate its richness and diversity of color. That is why many of her paintings have both a whimsical and magical, if not a timeless and ethereal effect. Her enhanced
color perception also allows her to represent light and form with just a few well placed but unexpected strokes of color, and therefore to paint more efficiently with less brushstrokes.
A true Contemporary Impressionist....
