May - August 2017
Commissioned Exhibition at THE YARD, featuring Paul Fabozzi
Private Opening: Wednesday, June 14, 6 - 8 PM
Fabozzi's constructed compositions are inspired not only by the contemporary and iconic aesthetic of cultural place, but also by the felt presence of the foundation-- a historic lineage, deciphered through architecture, reflecting a part of a whole. Breaking down these vertical layers, Fabozzi disseminates this information in the form of two-dimensional investigations that allow for patterns of light, a vocal color palette, and reinvented spatial planes.
"Perambulating with intensity and openness, Fabozzi explores universal themes of power, nostalgia, and imagined possibilities while intentionally setting himself in dialogue with monuments that give individual and collective meaning to our cultures, and the world at large. The result is a series of elegant, playful, and seductive paintings and drawings that evoke the enormous energy and intensity of their time and place."
-Excerpt from The Pensive City: Transience and Convergence Beyond Space, by Parves Mohsin
Each work is a site-specific piece that is cultivated through an intuitive connection from his explorations in cities across the world such as London, Rome, Berlin, Istanbul, New York, and Rio de Janeiro. New works from this series, Curved Locators, encourage the viewer to become enveloped in the artist's space, and dive into Fabozzi's process-- a practice where pilgrimage, meditation, division, then addition occurs resulting in geometric complexities of the building blocks of visual language: line, shape, and color.
