COLOR IS LIF
abstract paintings by Stanislao Sullo  

 
The New Haven Free Public Library Gallery (in the Lower Level) 
133 Elm Street   New HavenCT  (across from the New Haven Green)

Opening Reception:  Saturday, February 16, 2 to 4 PM

Stanislao Sullo is a New Haven artist, born in Panni, Italy. Sullo is a self-taught artist who works in watercolors, oils, and acrylics. He studied ancient art and worked in the fashion world in Bologna, Italy for many years. working in that worldon both Broadway, New York City and New Haven.

"In my works," says Stanislao,  Color is life. Color represents the mood of a person, and gives emotion to figures. Abstract colors give a personal interpretation of emotion, a variety of color-identification:the mood of the day -- -- morning -- afternoon -- evening..." 


Sullo's fascination with color began when in 2002 he opened his men's clothing store, Monsieur, in Bologna. Immersed in the world of fashion, he worked with local artisans to create lines of menswear with innovative color combinations and led his brand to become one of the most prestigious in northern Italy.  His storefront window displays were noted for their originality and he quickly became sought after as a window designer for businesses throughout Bologna.
Arriving in New Haven, Connecticut three years ago, Stanislao has continued to explore amalgamations of color through his work in storefront design and through his paintings.  He combines media, oil and acrylic paints and wax, to create textured and atmospheric images on large scale supports of canvas, linen, and wood.  He paintings subtly layer and juxtapose hues to provoke each individual viewer's own memories and experiences of color.
