In the summer of 1991, Francis Di Fronzo lived in a truck stop of a town on the edge of the Mojave Desert in a pure attempt to discover a unique artistic voice, away free from the distractions of ordinary life. His life consisted of the absolute bare necessities to survive; a tub, washbasin, toilet, rattling white 1950’s refrigerator, kitchen sink and a hot plate. His baggage was only a mattress, pillows, sheets, a few dishes, a single set of flatware and his drawing supplies. It was nine weeks of isolation in this barren environment.
Twenty years have passed, and the memory of those nine weeks continues to haunt the artist to this day. “The Earth’s Sharp Edge” is in essence a recollection and visual reconstruction of those days and weeks.
Do not miss this mesmerizing and haunting show of new work by Francis Di Fronzo. It is a great display revealing a season of exhilarating and highly potent exhibitions of masterful and internationally recognized talent at EVOKE Contemporary!
