"Almost all painters observe, inspect and analyze paintings all our life.
A puzzle gives everybody this prolonged view of an image and the interaction to build it piece by piece. I want it to make the piece of the puzzle in itself, the subject of the puzzle. The border lines, the scale the shadows and even the mood of the cognitive structures involved in the thinking process." Fabian Marcaccio
"I care more about the plot of painting as dynamic archaeology, rather than thinking about formalism, modernism or post whatever. Formalism, to me, is just an obsession. I’m interested in informalism but not as negation of form like the Europeans, instead, I see forms as pleated, being there as mental cartography, you know, pleated as speed of thoughts. I see my work as “painting in spite of itself,” instead of “painting itself” which is what the dogmatic formalists saw." Fabian Marcaccio BOMB MAGAZINE
Combining the now generic languages of abstract painting, Argentinean painter, Fabian Marcaccio constructs a bricolage of diverse cultural and historical approaches :Fabian Marcaccio by Shirly Kaneda | BOMB MAGAZINE
Artist Certificate: Each puzzle comes with an artist certificate.
Fabian Marcaccio’s work investigates whether the traditional medium of painting can survive in the digital age. He has used printmaking and transfer techniques to make paintings and became well known in the 1990s for his sculptural manipulations of the two-dimensional surface of canvas. More recently, he has infused his painting process with digital and industrial techniques. The results are environmental works, animations, and “Paintants” that combine digitally manipulated imagery, sculptural forms, and three-dimensionally painted surfaces.
Fabian Marcaccio was born in Rosario, Argentina in 1963. He lives and works in New York City. He has exhibited widely throughout the United States, Europe and South America.
