For this artist Eastern symbolism has a mysterious ambiguity with which he seeks to communicate and venerate the infinite. The artist's intention is to reflect the soul's journey, a universal experience of conflict, beauty and wonder.

Gentile combines rich color, ornamentation, motifs and sacred symbols with a personal iconography, an ?mage bank" of his journeys through the Himalayas and Japan that are infused with the teachings of lamas, monastic refuge, Zen and Tibetan Buddhism, yoga, martial arts and Feng Shui.

"In my works can be found the residue of actual experiences, captured impressions that could not be let go of. The real action is in getting it out; a bit like trying to jot down a message quickly before you forget what your're trying to say, or an attempt at remembering a dream before it slips away."
