A shadow is the projected image of a blocked light source. In a more abstract sense, a shadow is the darkness that results from the absence of light.   Traditionally, darkness represents sadness, ignorance, and fear, while light represents happiness, knowledge, and courage. In order for a shadow to exist, light and darkness must both be present.

Drawings, Paintings, Sculpture
This exhibition focuses on the interpretation of the human figure.  The emphasis is on subjective abstraction and reinterpretation—the dissembling and reintegration of the figure, through the mind of the artist.

In the late 1970s through early 1980s, John Nativio traveled and studied in Europe, during which time he was given access for further study in the private library archives of Old Master drawings at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

A short time after returning from Europe, Nativio taught life drawing at Cooper School of Art, and has since exhibited his work in more than seventy museum and gallery exhibitions, including over 70 juried exhibitions. Nativio has received national and international awards for painting and drawing. His most recent juried shows include the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio and the Maryland Federation of Art in Annapolis, Maryland; recent solo shows include the Washington Art Association in Washington Depot, Connecticut and at the Kenneth Paul Lesko Gallery in Cleveland, Ohio.  www.johnnativio.com
