Sunday Evening Art Gallery Blog — Robert Venosa


Robert Venosa (January 21, 1936 – August 9, 2011) studied  the Misch Technique (also known as the Master’s Technique) discovered by the seventeenth-century Flemishmasters Hubert and Jan Van Eyck, which utilizes the system of painting in tempera and oil glazes.


This technique is perfect for painting the crystalline worlds that Venosa envisions.

celestial Light goes through the surface oil glazes, bounces off the white tempera underpainting and comes back out hitting the eye with the illusion of transparent depth.


For Robert, it was more than a career — it was a spiritual path of self inquiry and direct experience of transcendent realities.


He has been called a visionary, his paintings slicing through the ethereal and bringing it closer to home.


His neighbor and friend Salvador Dali once said, “Bravo Venosa! Dali is pleased to see spiritual madness painted with such a fine technique.”
