The bright colors of nature give us energy, make us feel good, Under certain conditions a painting can do the same.

Paul Antonescu is an artist whose studio is in Saint-Paul-de-Vence in the south of France. Fans of his work encouraged him to put into writing what he was telling them about his passion and motivation to create. In Antonescu’s new book, “Gentle Monsters: Painting and Reflections” (published by AuthorHouse) he delves into his personal journey with the universe of colors.

“The bright colors of nature give us energy, make us feel good,” Antonescu explains. “Under certain conditions a painting can do the same.”

“Gentle Monsters” describes how Antonescu transmits good energy through his paintings as well as his experience and beliefs regarding the force of colors.

An excerpt from “Gentle Monsters”:

“Perfect colors radiating energy, filling perfect shapes of fantastic creatures in an ideal world: this is where I want to send you. To take you off ground, off the everyday routine and make you imagine as many things as possible there, in the painting. This is my vision to which I strive in order to transmit maximum of energy. If you see ‘something’ in the painting which remind you of or make you imagine inciting or exciting things, then the connection with the painting is done and it will last. The energy channel is established.”

“Today many people have no time to contemplate the colors of nature or of a painting. This book is a ‘manifesto’ to take the time, to be more curious, to take the benefit. It strives to answer some questions about the chromatic energy of a painting, bringing some new ideas, opening our curiosity to feel the energy. It can make us stop and look around to see the wonder of colors and to take in their energy.”
