Fabian Marcaccio: Paintant lab (November 13, 2015)01:18:50

Fabian Marcaccio disavows any interest in representation, decoration or the object, but focuses on process and methodology. He describes how his early interest in taxidermy, dissection and comics led to his "groundless" paintings that spilled out over the edge of the rectangle. From the late 1990s, his large-scale Environmental Paintant works--unlike traditional paintings--engage viewers in motion, as they walk along beside them. Unlike these abstract works, the "picto-photo-sculptural" Structural Canvas Paintant works employ representation, but filtered through his artistic influences and his life and media experiences. Marcaccio concludes with a discussion of his recent re-engineerings of longstanding visual motifs via 3D printing.
