The Bernarducci Meisel Gallery, in New York City, presents this third solo exhibition of still life paintings by Roberto Bernardi. A largely self-taught artist, Bernardi’s work fits seamlessly into the tapestry that is the history of art, drawing as comfortably from the romantic and dramatic tones of the Old Masters as he does from the vibrant and enthusiastic Pop artists. The work featured in this exhibition embraces what many would consider the banality of everyday life, yet Bernardi’s attention to detail, his passion for the precise, and his use of bold, vibrant colors transform mundane household chores and ordinary items into objects of desire.

As a non-artist, I've turned to photography and I am absouletly dumbfounded on the precision of this artist's ability to replicate almost exactly what the eye see's, what a negative or sensor would capture. I'd love to see his brain image while he paints... His gift frustrates (as well as amazes) me.

As a person who really doesn't like still life, I have to say that this is wonderful work. It's paintings like this that make me change my mind about still life paintings. Absolutely wonderful work!
