PICÓ’s poetic and kinetic SYNTAX art shown in a solo exhibition at Footlight Club in Jamaica Plain
June 5, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - June 20, 2015 @ 6:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Friday and Saturday, repeating indefinitely
The Italian artist PICÓ will have his paintings on display at the Footlight Club in Jamaica plain from June 5th to June 20th, the artist reception will be on June 13th. PICÓ’s show will be open to the public every Friday and Saturday from 6.30pm to 9pm during this period, to coincide with the Footlight Club’s Production of “The Cat’s Meow”.
PICÓ’s art is dedicated to defining new processes of composition by using a variety of elemental forms and rules as visual constructs. In this respect PICÓ’s work is more related to semiotics and architecture than to classical compositional and design principles. His artistic process starts with a pre-defined visual syntax and always ends in an “accidental” ensemble, which is poetic and kinetic.
PICÓ is an Italian artist living and working in Jamaica Plain, Boston. PICÓ began his artistic career in 2009 in London collaborating with the artist Josh Baum, working on making sculptures using water as the main element. These works – which have been featured in international art journals and shown in different galleries in the UK – marries art and science by manipulating water and its interaction with materials to create delicate pieces. More recently PICÓ has been focusing on his ‘SYNTAX’ paintings, using acrylic and mix media on canvas and wood as the main media.
