"UNVEILING" by Henry Asencio. "Unveiling" is a provocative image depicting a woman gracefully draped in a crimson robe. Facing the wall, her modesty seems obvious. Yet sensual tension, born of the artistic interplay of shadow and light, reveals an unspoken narrative quintessential of Asencio's art. Masking an aura of intrepidation, Asencio poses and engulfs his subject in pillars of darkness to create the visual drama in this work. Strong and elegant in posture, the risk of exposure is evident, yet seemingly welcome. Earning its integrity through the subtleties of visual intensity, Asencio extracts and distills the essence of this scene through the mastery of his artistic technique. The artist's unique combination of color, texture and exquisite form mirrors a state of awareness that serves to reveal his true intentions. Through caution and reserve the artist invites the viewer into this fictitious space in time to enjoy the splendor of the unknown. Although perhaps anticipating a glimpse of the forbidden, the tenderness of the moment is extrapolated and revered in "Unveiling". As with all of his images, the sophistication and execution of Asencio's artistic intentions cannot be denied, nor can they be ignored. Ultimately, "Unveiling" is a work of contemplation; for the artist, his subject and the viewer. In essence, it is an invitation into the world of Asencio.
