Francesco Lo Castro

YuIWSIHRJOcecrKCLMJoiGpJa91QitaNejS8sS6EdvCBNHkTsFz51ymhJRovzvTtEW8T0gw1248-h740Italian-born Francesco Lo Castro grew up in Germany and has been active in the South Florida art scene for more than a decade. His work has an international audience and widespread appeal. The artist delves further into his Geometry series with a new body of mixed-media work and video animation. In these latest pieces, Lo Castro employs unorthodox painting techniques that involve the intricate layering of pigment and resin to achieve a heightened sense of dimension and depth.

“My work employs unorthodox painting techniques that involve the intricate layering of pigment and resin to achieve a heightened sense of dimension and depth.  
 What at first glance appears to be the result of countless hours spent with graphic design software is revealed at closer examination to be meticulously handcrafted combinations of acrylic, spray paint, epoxy and even gold leaf applied on wood.  These colorful compositions depict a kaleidoscopic vision, dense with movement and a combination of explosiveness and strict order, vibrancy and dreaminess, power and release. Accompanying video animations explore a further imagining of the paintings as three-dimensional environments.  Feeling frenetic and alive, these bright and shifting allegorical constructs present fleeting moments of harmony and dissonance as an immersive experience and a visual vocabulary that addresses social order within cosmic chaos, mutation within natural sequence. 
 My paintings depict space on macro and micro levels, reminiscent of man’s interplay and contact with architecture and basic living elements. As energy and landscape are examined in less obvious, oftentimes absurd, ways, I hope to establish a link between physical reality and its hidden structures of ubiquitous networks, addressing questions that determine humanity’s expanding vernacular in the face of accelerating existential progression.”
