Marking his fifth solo exhibition at Marx & Zavattero, Bay Area painter Stephen Giannetti debuts a fresh take on his abstract color field work with a new series of acrylic on linen paintings January 21 – February 25, 2012. Through the extremely controlled use of spray paint, Giannetti’s new series weaves layers of spray into complex compositions that mirror sheer pixelated grids reading as atoms, particles, or cells. The translucency of this new technique effects an opulent, magnified space that transcends his earlier re-working of the modernist formulism for which he is best known.
You are welcome to join us for the opening reception for the artist on Saturday, January 21 beginning at 5:00 pm, with spirits generously provided by San Francisco's own Blue Angel Vodka.
