Franco Assetto

Esther Robles Gallery

Visually powerful ceramic-like relief paintings in impasto acid-bitten aluminum aggregate with brilliant, flaming colors are reminiscent of jazzy carnival decorations or Venetian pageants. The artist sculpts his painting with hard-edge forms creating objects rather than pictures. They appear to be intellectually inspired and executed despite their seeming freedom and flashiness. But the result is a happy, almost joyous celebration of one man’s discovery of form and color.
