“In this paintings from my Forms series, I explore the edge between representation and abstraction through experiments with form, composition, color and pattern. These works are process driven. During the process I enter in an intimate dialogue with the painting: at times I guide it; other times it guides me. Through this dialogue I “carve” out forms. I intentionally leave these forms ambiguous, slippery, constantly receding from becoming something specific.” — Piero Passacantando

About the Artist

File 115682

Piero Passacantando (b. 1979) is an interdisciplinary artist whose works explore the overlap between artistic output and the social dimension. His paintings are influenced by a wide range of methods and historical sources, from the Italian late-medieval period to the Buddhist thangka tradition, from surrealism to minimalism. His works seek to establish a charged intimacy with the viewer. Passacantando holds an MFA from the California College of the Arts and a BFA from the Corcoran College of Art and Design, Washington, DC. He lives and works between Porto Santo Stefano, Italy, and Casablanca, Morocco.
