Art is not what you see, but what you make others see – Edgar Degas
2012 ASID San Diego Chapter – Best Use of Textiles for her vintage masterpiece furniture
There is a special energy behind the eye of an artist selecting and reclaiming a once loved item from the past, preserving then presenting it for a new age, in a new fashion. Such is the force behind fine artist Concetta Antico’s revived Vintage Masterpiece Furnishings. Taking the best of age-old craftsmanship, Impressionist masterworks and her talent as artist with oil on canvas as she composes items that are not only collectible, but functional and beautiful.

The Peacock Vase
Plump, pretty and patterned this peacock image was inspired by the magnificent figurative works of Norman Lindsay. Peacocks are my signature theme. I am moved by them as they represent heaven and as a Tetrachromat I am able to portray their vivid colors. The peacock form seemed to easily embody and, with its long decorative tail, wrap elegantly about the shape of this vessel.
