The First Look of the ‘13’ Collection, An Interpretation of:
“The storm on the sea of Galilee”
by Giovanni Decunto
The only seascape painted by Rembrandt, “The Storm on the Sea of Galilee” depicts the miracle of Jesus calming the storm, as told in the Gospel of Mark. Painted when Rembrandt was still quite young, it is full of drama, terror and human frailty.
American artist Giovanni DeCunto is changing the course of modern art by developing an innovative method of painting to bridge the gap between the old and new. Resonating with the Baroque and contemporary painters, as well as being heavily influenced by culture and humanity. DeCunto’s work consists of abstract and representational forms made with acrylic paint –– often poetic and gracefully formed and at times boldly colored –– that hang in an uncanny, perfect balance. DeCunto has developed a unique technique that no other contemporary painter is using. His technique mostly excludes the use of tools, resulting in painting with tubes of paint. He manipulates the paint through movement and occasionally with the touch of his hands.
