Hyperrealism has always been Luigi’s dream and goal as an artist. The art studio is set up with everything from authentic diner stools from the 1950’s to the original Coca Cola bottles, model cars and the Mobile Gas Pump. In addition, as an avid HD motorcyclist, Rocca has painted HD engines and bikes, including his own, in many of his paintings.  Luigi transfers the images and feeling onto canvas without the aid of sophisticated technological tools. He avails himself of his own photographic references in order to reveal their details normally overlooked by the human eye. The images have to be his creation. Luigi had already fixed the features and details of his subjects, their tones, forms and perspectives in his mind.

Rocca paints in the acrylic medium on canvas to be able to put the minutest details into each painting.  When up close to the painting one can see the brush strokes and painterly aspects of the painting.  The further one pulls back from the painting, the more and more the original painting takes on the feeling of a photograph capturing a moment in time.  The amazing transference plays with the eye and mind of the viewer, a centerpiece for discussion and amazement.

a personal exhibition for Luigi Rocca was named in homage to all things beautiful and iconic in America.

Arnot Gallery is proud to represent Luigi Rocca with our fifth personal exhibition for Rocca in our gallery.  A poster specially created by and signed by Rocca for this exhibition along with an artist signed hard cover book, will be gifted with each painting purchase along with a signed hard cover book with the AMERICAN BEAUTY insert, while supplies last.  All original paintings will be accompanied with certificate of authenticity with a photograph of Luigi Rocca with the painting in his studio.

In addition, Arnot Gallery has a special video available on our online gallery for this special exhibition.  Please visit this video with this direct link to the AMERICAN BEAUTY PERSONAL EXHIBITION VIDEO

Luigi Rocca, hyperrealist painter, was born in Porpetto, Italy on December 26, 1952.  Rocca has always been fascinated with America and lived in America for about six years in the 1980’s.  The nostalgic references to earlier days are evident in his American subject matter.  Rocca currently lives and paints in Italy.
