Upon viewing Antonio Santin's rugs, one is left in awe of not only the artist's mastery and application of hyper-realism, but also his chosen subject matter—gorgeous fibers draped over an obscure form. The shapes that protrude from beneath the carpets seem vaguely human, if not animalistic, though they remain completely abstract. Each mound and shadow of said object—or living being?—breaks the gentle composition of the highly decorative rugs. One is left to wonder if the rugs themselves offer a hint as to the identity of the shapes beneath the cloth, or do the fibers simply offer aesthetic beauty to hold the viewer's attention?
