“The painting of Santo Antonino Coppola is philosophy transformed in structures and colors that dance freely on the canvas. Between reality and unconscious visions, the artist catches the deep essence of the chromatic matter, which becomes music and poetry.
The symbol is reduced to synthesis of art-science-history.” – Vittorio Sgarbi
“The painting of Santo Antonino Coppola expresses the authentic self of the artist involved in the philosophic research through the language, which sometimes is disturbing, of structures and colors.
In the figurative theme, it can be seen something lost that tries to survive in an unlivable space.
The message, which is distant from trends or inclinations, throws us in a lyric far-reaching cosmic vision.
The colors of the thought that structure the compositions hover on the paintings and are covered by a feeling of mystery. The enigma of the artworks arrives at the total abandonment to the act of faith.” – Federico Zeri
