Cindy Lisica Gallery presents Fabrizio Gerbino opening reception
The recent paintings of Fabrizio Gerbino are a convergence of the artist’s surroundings and a honed process of working with the single and basic element, carbon. The large-scale pieces represent an incredible undertaking by the artist. For the viewer, the works deliver timely moments, while grasping the complexity of each piece that has been realized from the essential, or the core. The often breathtaking paintings are visually poetic, as Gerbino pays homage to the origin of drawing itself, the line, combined with the primary medium of carbon. The results are ethereal, atmospheric works.
The exhibition also presents the site-specific installation, Purge. With mathematical precision, Gerbino creates an entire wall of object-pairings featuring similar yet unique forms, all based on found objects that had been discarded from a ceramic workshop in Florence. The original sources slept in his studio for years, recently finding new life in his art.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through February 6.
