GIANGIACOMO ROSSETTI: Through a thin wall
The Power Station
3816 Commerce St
Dallas, Texas 75226
Opens on Wednesday, April 19 | Reception: 5 – 8 PM
The Power Station is pleased to present Through a thin wall, Giangiacomo Rossetti’s first institutional exhibition in the United States featuring work from 2016 to the present. Rossetti’s practice mines the implications of feverishly viewing, studying, and absorbing painting. Borrowing from Realism, the High Renaissance, Mannerism, and Futurism, he makes use of received styles to filter his own compositional strategies. Subjects are drawn from his personal life and immediate circle, and often include his own likeness. The artist’s technique can vary considerably from one painting to the next, as if sampling from historical tableaux, and the friction in his work is produced in that struggle between the pleasures of experimentation and the seductive force of a virtuosic past.
Organized by Rob Teeters.
