Hopkins reveals another talent with his paintings inspired by his dreams and drawn from his unconscious mind. Often described as surrealistic, Hopkins creates acrylic paintings on canvases using a palette knife and a variety of inks to explore the different emotions associated with the combinations of colors used in his works. As part of the exhibition, ten limited edition serigraphs will be available at both galleries.
When asked to describe his paintings, Hopkins responds, "The face is not important. It's the eyes. The eyes are the most haunting part of one's soul. It's very primitive. It's childish art. It has to be childish because I am a child. I've discovered lately that I enjoy all that is supposedly wrong with me. I used to take myself so seriously, but now I don't. I allow myself to revel in the exhilarating nature of it all, maybe reaching for the divine."
Working by trial and error, Hopkins continues to forge new paths in the art world by offering collectors a completely fresh approach to modernist art. Known for his mastery of many creative outlets, Hopkins relies on his instincts to produce cohesive, moving and startling pieces of art through form, color, texture and light.
Guests are welcome to visit Sir Anthony Hopkins' art exhibition at Jeff Mitchum Galleries in Bellagio and MGM Grand. For more information, visit jeffmitchumgalleries.com or call (800) 763-3074.
