Gianfranco Pardi (1933–2012)

Italian artist Gianfranco Pardi passed away in his home yesterday afternoon. His work, much of which he designated as “Architecture”—betrayed a career-long fascination with geometric variation, material, and form. Pardi exhibited in the 1986 Venice Biennale while also that same year showing work in the Milan Triennale and the Quadrennial of Rome. He was affiliated with Gió Marconi Gallery in Milan and later with Galleria Fumagalli in Bergamo. His works are held in numerous private and public collections in Italy and abroad.
