Opening Reception | Breschi: Acrylic Paintings on Canvas

Date/Time

Oct 7, 2017
05:30 PM until 08:30 PM

Description

FRG Objects & Design / Art invites you to celebrate the opening of "BRESCHI", a selection of acrylic paintings on canvas by Italian artist Fabrizio Breschi. Crisp geometric shapes and a Mondrian-like emphasis on negative space are at the core of Breschi’s non-objective compositions, softened by meticulously executed, gently shifting color spectra.

Inspired by technological imagery of his home town, Livorno, Breschi layers matte acrylic paints to resemble polished chrome, creating gleaming tubes that course between canvases like elaborate mechanical systems. In a more representational selection of work, traditionally bulky, rectangular robots appear surprisingly domestic.

Breschi, at 35, was the youngest professor-lecturer in the history of the prestigeous Accademia de Belle Art (Brera), Milan, to hold the painting chair.

He has exhibited in Italy, France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Greece, and the United States. His 25-foot metal sculpture, Grande V was installed in Piazza della Victoria, Livorno in August, 2017.

The opening reception for Fabrizio Breschi's work will be held on Saturday, October 7 from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m at FRG Objects & Design / Art, 217 Warren Street, 2nd Floor, Hudson. We look forward to seeing you there.
