"DAWN" by Henry Asencio. The work of contemporary painter Henry Asencio has the ability to capture and captivate at the same time — his viewers, his subjects, and himself as well. This captivation is not only about visual beauty, but it is equally profound in spirit and emotion. Asencio claims to be spiritually moved by the mere execution of his paintings, each work of art becoming an epiphany of thought and idea. "Dawn" is just such a work of art. Loosely etched into the background of the painting the artist writes, "Relish in the dawn of the past." Perhaps Asencio is referring to a sudden understanding of past events or the enlightenment that comes with growth through past experiences or maybe just referring to new beginnings. At its inception, Asencio claims he had no intellectual interpretation for this image, he was merely fascinated by the pure beauty of this pose. Capturing a glimpse of a woman in the midst of the dawn of a new day he encapsulates simple serenity with color and light. Using white to symbolize purity and renewal, his palette is simple yet profound. Compositionally, the anonymity of the figure lends power to a universal message. Whatever its underlying meaning, if any, the essence of "Dawn" is pure beauty and simplicity, which is captivating in and of itself.
