New series of Floral Paintings by Ted Asnis Opens at Bobby Van’s Restaurant
Ted Asnis is presenting a new series of floral paintings at Bobby Van’s restaurant in Bridgehampton throughout June. Beach scenes and equestrian paintings by Asnis will follow in July at the renowned Main Street restaurant.
Asnis has been capturing the spirit and beauty of Long Island’s East End on canvas for the past twenty years. His artwork is renowned in the Hamptons for its themes that go beyond the sand and beach with enticing waves and cool water often including beautiful open landscapes and rural farmsteads.
In other beach scenes, vast expanses of color and line include barns and farmland architecture tucked behind.
Private garden paintings commissioned by many of Asnis's clients in the Hamptons are beautiful portraits of intimate landscapes.
A series of floral paintings are now on view at Bobby Van’s restaurant in Bridgehampton, NY. The new artworks remain on view through June 30, 2013.
Asnis studied architecture at the University of Florida and at the New York School of Interior Design. Before focusing his energies on painting the beautiful Hampton environment, he ran his own commercial design firm in New York City.
During that time, Asnis's artistic skills were honed on architectural illustration. Asnis was one of the top illustrators in the field and his work was commissioned by many prominent designers and architects.
Standing in stark contrast to floral paintings and beach paintings are Asnis’s equestrian artwork. Asnis has a talent for capturing the movement of these magnificent animals. His horseracing, polo and action scenes are powerful paintings and are sought after artworks. Asnis's grazing horses paintings reflect the quiet and brooding majesty of these arresting creatures.
A new series of beach scenes and equestrian paintings will be exhibited at Bobby Van’s restaurant in July.
Bobby Van’s was founded in 1969 and was originally renowned as the gathering place for literary giants such as James Jones and John Knowles. Rumor has it that Truman Capote completed his novel In Cold Blood in the original Bobby’s Vans steakhouse. This creative legacy continues today through the art and photography exhibited in dining room of the Bridgehampton restaurant.
