Color Magic

HOME SWEET HOME, A SWINGING GALLERY SOIREE, WOW! THAT’S AMAZING!, A LION AT THE GATES!

THE COLOR QUEEN’S MUSE NEWS

Some dreams take almost a lifetime, but finally do come true!

When I departed my home town of Sydney over 25 years ago I was fresh out of college.  I had no idea I’d be gone so long, it was not my intention.

As a very young girl of 6, I was already painting at home at a little wooden easel. Copying The Impressionists.  I dreamt about what I would be one day, of my future.

I hoped for a grand gallery of my own one day, to showcase my paintings.  This was my wistful notion.  My one consistent wish.

So it seems wishes can, and do come true!

I’m back and I have my gallery in my home town.

Sydney, thank you! You have welcomed me with open arms and enthusiasm.  Childhood friends and family are elated and proud for me and I am excited for my next journey. After a long search I have found my perfect and final destination.  Or did it find me?

Ideal as The Concetta Antico Gallery, the stately 1899 heritage listed mansion “Pendowar”  on the famed Oxford Street in the Paddington arts district was once The popular Caspian Gallery, so it was made to order.

A grande dame of a building, it boasts all The Color Queen attributes from it’s stained glass doors and windows to its decorative ultra high ceiling medallions, architraves, and flamboyant decorative archways.  It offers a museum quality design, its large walls are the perfect place to hang my golden framed beauty and nature inspired 100 million color Tetrachromatic masterpieces.

This month Pendowar it getting a long overdue “spa treatment” complete with fresh paint, lighting and many other upgrades  – she shines!

My first exhibition will run July 11-August 7.
Visions of the Muse -100 Million Color Masterpieces
THE GRAND OPENING NIGHT is Saturday – July 13 –  6-10pm.
Please Come by to MEET ME and WATCH ME PAINT LIVE!
All are welcome!
Pendowar and I look forward to greeting you all at the door of my new gallery, my new home, my new Muse…

THE COLOR QUEEN’S MUSE NEWS


 
Dear Family, Friends, Collectors, Art Lovers and Students,
 
As I sit here late at night at my farm in Byron Bay, Australia, I find it hard to believe another holiday season is upon us and I reflect on all the tiny moments that comprised this one full year that has swiftly past us by… It makes me pause, in a way that is solemn and makes me ask “Did I celebrate life in the best way possible and could I have held gratitude and let special events land longer?”. It is my new resolution if I didn’t :).
 
This year was surely a significant one for me.
 
Change was the hallmark of every month as I now lean into reinventing my world yet again. Major milestones included the end of my teaching career in my studio in San Diego, a feature at The iN Gallery, making the cover and feature story in the guide book of Where Magazine in every SD hotel,  the final relocation of my home base, from Mission Hills to my farm in Byron Bay to start many new chapters in creativity down under.  This year I also visited London and fell in love with the culture there, the arts were celebrated so profoundly and the National Gallery was a pilgrimage for me, as well as a special visit to Chartwell, the home of Winston Churchill who was also an artist of great acclaim!
 

 
I was celebrated many times in the world press, with several documentaries completed and some still in the works as my gift of tetrachromacy continues to make bold scientific news! The research with Dr. Kimberly Jameson at UCI continues, and I feel blessed to have such a colorful gift!
 
My last show in November “ Phantasmic Paintings” at my Witherby Gardens home was also very significant.  I was delighted to sell my entire San Diego art collection one day before the show! This amazing image of the collector’s christmas tree flanked by just some of the artwork sold is a testimony to the beauty of my art and makes me so proud. I feel blessed to do what I love for my life work.
 
2019 promises to be a very special year, as it feels like opening a surprise gift… I do not know exactly what is inside, but it is sure to delight and be different! So I am ready to immerse myself in the next conjuring! To reinvent myself and my art with new influences and cultural experiences!
 
Finally, I do wish you all a very Merry Christmas, a happy, happy holiday season and a wealth of success and joy in the coming year.   I hope to continue to teach many of you either across cyberspace:) or at my new Gallery and Studio.
 
Also, I look forward to seeing all my San Diego friends again soon at my next show in Coronado on Saturday June 15 – do SAVE THAT DATE!
 
Let’s stay in touch, I’d love to hear from you anytime, and keep loving art…
 
 

CONCETTA IN THE MEDIA


 
December 27th, Concetta will be featured on the homepage of New York Magazine and The Cut in a video interview entitled What It’s Like To See 100 Million Colors.
 

 Concetta was recently interviewed by cultural historian Ainsley Hawthorn, Ph.D., for an upcoming non-fiction book called The Other Five Senses.
 
Dr. Hawthorn interviewed Concetta for the last chapter of the book, which describes special sensory abilities like tetrachromacy, magnetic sense of direction, and echolocation, which some blind people have learned to use (like bats and dolphins do) to get around.
 
The book is still being written. Stay tuned for the publication date!

 
 

SAVE THE DATE… SATURDAY JUNE 15TH!

Final show in San Diego after 30 years… last chance to see my work in person before moving to Australia.

Fond Farewell SD, Rainbow Love, Last Phantasmic Show with Tetrachromatic Magick!

THE COLOR QUEEN’S MUSE NEWS

 
Concetta Antico
 
Dear Family, Friends, Collectors, Art Lovers and Students,
 
After almost 3 decades in the United States I am bidding a fond farewell to reside at my Tooraloo Farmstay in beautiful Byron Bay, Australia.
 
San Diego has been a wonderful place to grow my business, create art and teach thousands of people how to paint with oils at my various Salon of Art studios. While I will still retain my residence here, I will not be teaching or having art shows here in the foreseeable future.
 
I sincerely hope to see you and to say goodbye at my “Phantasmic Paintings” tetrachromatic art show Next Saturday Night! If you haven’t already, you can RSVP Here!
 
As many of you know me very well, you can understand that I have yet another project in the works… A new gallery and Art Instruction in Byron Bay, NSW beginning March 1st.
 
I will still be the subject of research at UC Irvine and I will still be promoting my brand internationally, but home base will now be at Tooraloo.
 
As we also offer vacation rental accommodation there – I welcome you to come visit anytime and see paradise! Visit Tooraloo Farmstay!
 
Please enjoy the following update and I will continue to send out a newsletter monthly so you may know the latest Concetta Antico, Color Queen brand news!
 
Until then, I wish you all health, peace and prosperity and I send a huge thank you to all of you who have loved my programs and my art throughout the years.
 
I will miss you all very much.
All good blessings,
Concetta

Celebrities, Who Are Obsessed with Collecting Artworks

Collecting art is rather an expensive hobby, which can be afforded by rich people only. That’s why it’s not surprising at all that modern celebrities are among the biggest art collectors in the world. And while you seek for the best celebrity posters to adorn your home, your idols spend fantastic sums of money for a single piece just to get inspired by the artwork and boast of it. Want to know who of your favorite celebrities is fond of collecting art? Let’s see.

 

Elton John

Legendary Elton John is one of hugest collectors of art both vintage and contemporary. He has one of the biggest collections of photography, which consists of more than 4000 fine art photos, including early Modernist and Surrealist works by Man Ray and Irving Penn. Moreover, the singer owns artworks by Philip Taaffe, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst and Andy Warhol.

 

Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio is a frequent guest at various art auctions and fairs. Among the biggest purchases of the actor are the works of Takashi Murakami, Oscar Murillo and Salvador Dali. He also collects artworks by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Ed Ruscha, Todd Schorr and Mark Ryden.

Pharrell Williams

Among his acquisitions are art pieces by Takashi Murakami, KAWS, Keith Haring and Daniel Arsham. He also owns more than 700 Art Toys, which he presented at “This is not a toy” exhibition at the Design Exchange in Toronto. Moreover, the singer collaborated with artist Takashi Murakami on “The Simple Things” piece

Madonna

The art collection of Madonna is estimated of more than $100 million. Her interest in art rose in 1980s, when she was dating artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, who took back the paintings, presented to the singer after they broke up and painted over them in black. Madonna owns “My Birth” piece by Frida Kahlo as well as works by Marilyn Minter, Man Ray, Fernand Leger, Picasso, Diego Rivera and Tamara de Lempicka.

 

David and Victoria Beckham

The art collection of the Beckham family is allegedly worth more than $35 million. The artworks, the majority of which are “love themed”, adorn their homes in London, Milan and Los Angeles. The collection of David and Victoria includes the masterpieces, created by Dinos Chapman, Sam Taylor Wood, Tracey Emin and Banksy. One of the latest acquirements of the Beckhams is a huge pink heart, called Daddy’s girl, by Damien Hirst.

 

Beyonce and Jay-Z

Beyonce adores collecting art and has turned it into a joint hobby with her husband Jay-Z. The celebrities own artworks by Richard Prince, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Tim Noble, David Hammons, Ed Ruscha and Damien Hirst.

Swizz Beatz

The love for art collecting woke up in Swizz Beatz after his interest in Jean-Michel Basquiat. After buying his artwork, Swizz started to consider creating his own art collection and soon, made his dreams true. Among the artworks, owned by the rapper, are the pieces by Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Enie Barnes, KAWS, Cecily Brown and Takashi Murakami. Moreover, the impressive art collection inspired the celebrity to try painting.

 

Moby

At his home, Moby has many artworks, among which are the ones by JR, Shepard Fairey, David Lynch and Mark Ryden. Also, he owns drawings by Matt Groening, “The Simpsons” creator, and Dean DeBlois, co-writer and co-director of “Lilo & Stitch”. Besides art, the singer also collects vintage globes, cameras and Danish modern furniture.

 

Lady Gaga

It’s evident that Lady Gaga is a very creative personality. So, it’s rather natural that she is fond of art and draws inspiration from numerous masterpieces she owns. Among her favorites are Francesco Vezzoli and Leigh Bowery. Moreover, the singer is a supporter of the Watermill Center, an artist colony in the Hamptons.

I’m the Woman with Rainbow Vision – Here’s Why!

Hello Color Lovers and Budding IFLScientists of Mine!

 

Let’s talk about what it’s like to see the world with “rainbow” vision…

 

Well, as the world’s first authenticated tetrachromat artist I have been given the privilege, and the gift of an extra 4th cone/receptor in my eyes. Think of TETRA meaning “ four (cones)” and CHROMA meaning “color”. This genetic mutation was given to me by my Mum when I was created, so I like to call it my gift! It is my gift, and more importantly, the USE of my gift which has expanded my color reach from the potential of one million colors (regular vision mortals), up to 100 million colors (your’s truly X-Woman super vision functioning artist, color Muse and tetrachromat)!
First Tetrachromat Artist
Yup, I can see to the multi-colored moon, infinity and beyond baby! But as phenomenal as this sounds, this super vision goddess status did not come easy. Color fascinated folks ask me all the time “ How does it work?”. No – just staring into my eyes doesn’t tell you anything about my ability – LOL…!

 

With new science and over 500 million media impressions in the past 3 years, the world wide press are now calling me an “X-Woman” and “ The Woman with Rainbow Vision”, (so loving these uber fun titles). Yes, it IS true that the colors of my world speak to me exponentially more than they do to others. Even much more than others who carry the tetrachromacy mutation too. You see the reason is that without FUNCTIONING TETRACHROMACY, the ON switch for superior color vision reception stays in the OFF position!
Rainbow Vision
Let’s explore the “FUNCTIONING” part a bit more to find out why because this is the COLOR KEY.

The fact is that it is in the USE of the GIFT where the phenomena really becomes switched on and explodes it’s color wad! Thats’ when the rainbow fireworks blast off! You see, it is one thing to be born with the extra color cone in your eyes, (can be as common as 12% of women of European decent the experts are now saying), it is another thing altogether to have developed it. Kinda the “you use it or lose it” factor!

 

Here’s a great example. Think of a MUSCLE.

 

A muscle is only as strong as it is worked out – right? If you never pumped that iron baby then you would need more than a can of spinach to lift that iron bar and get that 8-pack! Well, it is like that for Tetrachromatic color vision genetics. You gotta work, work, work that 4th color cone magic daily and for a long, long, long time to reach the highest potential. Simply that. As an artist since age 7 I had the good fortune to do just that ~ for my entire life…
PeacocksOnParade24x48-BlackAndBlue
I have USED it, and WORKED it, and CREATED with it, and MIXED COLOR with it, and PAINTED 1000’s of paintings with it, and, and! And it is through my artwork that fortunately for the world that they can truly see some of what I see too. My art is the window to that Rainbow World for you all to view. Think 3D, holographic, electric color and some say, “Avatar”-like. That’s how I portray my color gift.
That is TRULY how I see my world.

 

So, in a rainbow nutshell fans of color – that’s why they call me the perfect storm for functioning color vision Tetrachromacy. I like to think of myself as The Color Queen – hahaha:) So enjoy more amazing colors of our beautiful planet through my Tetrachromatic artwork ~ for they are truly there…

Press About Concetta Antico

The Scientific Researcher on Concetta’s Color Perception

Dr., Kimberly Jameson, University of California’s Institute for Mathematical Behavioral Sciences, continue to pursue assessment of Concetta Antico as a research participant of great interest.

 

New research results in which Concetta Antico has been involved as a research participant, bear on issues relating to individual differences in color processing.  Dr. Jameson recently presented new findings in a research colloquium to the faculty at Institute of Mathematical Behavioral Sciences at UC Irvine, and receiving positive support for the new findings, and will be presenting again at the Munsell2018.org conference (see attached abstract). Jameson’s new results are the most recent in a several years effort by which she has  learned much new information about the ways expert observers differ in color processing from, for example, a standard normal observer. The issue of individual variation in color perception, and how it relates to what is know about a standard normal form of color processing, is, of course, something that is central to the study of comparative color perception and artistic processing of visual scenes, and is of great interest to the art collector and enthusiast community.  Dr. Jameson believes that her team of researchers and the collaborative work they have engaged in with Concetta Antico, presents an exciting opportunity for extending impact on developing approaches for personalized data displays and color space models.  Dr. Jameson’s research team have a very solid and productive collaborative relationship with Concetta Antico — who has voluntarily participated in our research investigations for several years now. Additional findings on Antico’s tetrachromatic processing potential are expected in Fall 2018.

Grateful For Color

What can fill your eyes and then your heart?

Truly, it is the colors of our world which bless us upon waking. Every day in every beautiful creation on planet earth and in the universe above us we are given this great gift of seeing joyous color!  At a time of great thanks here in the United States, (where I am lucky to be this week at my home in San Diego), it makes me reflect on all of the unique visual beauty which surrounds me across the globe.  As your Color Queen,  I want to share color joy and to suggest that you too be mindful of it in your life. Please reward yourself by taking time to pause, and reflect on the many nuances of color in every part of our day and also your night…
 

 
Regular human vision has the capability of seeing up to one million colors. Think of it. Try to imagine 1 million colors placed in front of you.  Do you ever stop to discern the varieties which are abundantly displayed for your viewing pleasure?  Or do you glance and just assume colors? “ Oh yeah, that’s red”.  Yes, but what red? Perhaps you too see without truly looking.  Did you know you can train yourself, your brain, to actually see more colors? The minimally one million number you are meant to see.  Studies show that beautiful color elevates our mood, lifts depression, and so many more benefits! The fact is we can change our attitude by being around the colors we love.  We can feel comforted, safer, happier or more serene due to color. WOW! That’s color power!
 

 
So how can I teach you to find more joy in color by really noticing it? Well, as a scientifically verified tetrachromat, I can see up to 99 million more colors and I can educate you, remind you that you can see more colors too. The truth is being a functional tetrachromat meant that I immersed myself in color in every way, my entire life.  Yes, color speaks to me very clearly and is a huge part of my world.  It dictates that I give it optical homage. I cannot ignore any part of it.  I cannot escape the finer details of it in every aspect of my daily life.  I have learned to analyze it in even the smallest of ways. I have learned to revere it on the largest of  palettes bestowed to us by Mother Nature. I have learned to passionately love it so well.
 

 
Here’s a tip or two.  Study the next insect which alights on you. For example, look carefully at the miracle of color on a beetle’s back, the eyes of a fly, or the wings of a butterfly. Study it.  When next in the garden find a flower you admire and get intimate with the delicate structure and shades of color in every petal or its leaves. Look at every blade of grass when next you sit in a park. Or look deeper still at the microscopic world that lives beneath it, in the soil.  To be even more mindful perhaps document the colors with words or create a poem to honor your experience. When next you encounter an animal, research with your eyes the variety of color and values in it. Look at every part of it and try to keep count of your observations.  Look at the colors in the grains and seeds on a bagel or slice of bread, or the colors of the reflections on the water, even if it is in your own bathtub! Study light in all its forms.  See the true colors in the eyes of someone you love, tell them what you see, and why they are beautiful…  Notice the variety of color in the Fall leaves, or the next sunset, or sunrise, or the colors of “white” in the clouds.
 

 
Do this, and you will be living like a tetrachromat:)! You will step into my world of colorful beauty and wonder! You will know what it is I see, what I study, what I notice and why I am so joyful.  Then you too can enjoy my gift of more color.  It is only in the authentic noticing and the associated new knowing of color variety that you will be overwhelmed with a new profound appreciation of the priceless treasures of color we are blessed to live in. Soon you will be praying at the altar of color and be spiritually lifted into that sacred spectra!
 
May this Thanksgiving Season be the one which makes you truly appreciate all you have been given in this wondrous world and may that gratitude color your life with rainbows.
 
My blessings to you and yours.
