About the Exhibit:

Texas Contemporary Artists Series: Henry Catenacci

February 4, 2012 - May 19, 2012

The Texas Contemporary Artists Series exhibitions showcase the talents of some of Texas’ premier artists. This series focuses on the work of contemporary artists who call Texas home. Common to all of their work is the bold vision and unbridled exuberance that is the quintessence of Texan culture. The Texas Contemporary Artists Series is curated by Arturo Infante Almeida, curator for the UTSA art collection.
 
Henry Catenacci’s work is now featured. His surrealist art captures a deep love of nature and humanity’s connection to it. Curator Almeida describes it as an examination of the ephemeral space between what is real and what is possible.
 
Catenacci favors wax pencil and gouache, which offer versatility in creating images, appearing as oil or water color depending on the artist’s intent. Additionally, it allows a great level of detail in each piece. The exhibit includes eight works, installations in two cases, a time-lapse of creating a portion of an artwork, and an interview on the artist’s background and approach to creating his works.
