Past Exhibition

Marco Maggi: Lentissimo

When: January 20 - April 1, 2012

About the Show

Marco Maggi, takes ordinary mass-produced materials such as reams of photocopy paper, rolls of aluminum foil, empty slide casings, eye-glass lenses, and acrylic parking mirrors as the starting point for his work. These everyday items are transformed at the hands of the artist to spread his intricate, often repetitive, and sometimes obsessive patterns across their surfaces forming amorphous landscapes, imagined topographies, or elaborate diagrams. This exhibition of Maggi’s most recent work is entitled Lentissimo (Italian for very slow) because it explores the artist’s relationship to time while inviting viewers in for quiet, careful observation. The works on view represent not only the slow pace required for viewing the work, but also reflect the intense concentration, introspection, and attention to detail involved in the artistic process. The exhibition includes three of his Hotbeds, fragile cut-paper sculptures arranged on the floor which evidence Maggi’s mastery of precise lines and abstract patterns.

The exhibition is supported by the Evelyn Metzger Exhibition Fund.
