American Pastoral is Bernardo Siciliano’s third solo show at Aicon. The present exhibition brings together an intensely personal body of work that mines the artist’s self-perception and how that informs his view of the world. Siciliano paints what is closest and most personal to him, thrusting these intimate and private moments into the spotlight with his dazzling technical ability and mastery of palette. There are six large canvases on display, each of the canvases in the exhibition conjure a tension between the viewer, the sitter/subject and the artist himself – a quality that is typical of his oeuvre.

As the artist Vincent Desiderio says:

“The paintings of Bernardo Siciliano imply a ferocious will to see and record. They are unadorned by finery, presenting, as it were, just the essential facts. They are brutal in both their scrutiny and the limits which the artist imposes upon himself. Yet, though empirically driven they seem overcome by a sense of visual panic. They are haunted by nagging suspicion that though everything in the optical field has been accounted for, there remains an ineluctable other that drives the imagination beyond the quotidian.”
