DESCRIPTION

https://www.facebook.com/events/505463846188125/

The structures in Stabile's artwork result from an architectural approach to the composition of elements in space, where forces are balanced to resist or escape gravity. He works by juxtaposing colors, orientations, and symbolic forms that become unified in an unbalanced symmetry of composition within a space that is essentially two-dimensional.

He prefers to paint or draw with rapid strokes, like a calligrapher, because speed is important as a way of ensuring the integrity of the moment. Color is used with the feeling that it is di troppo: saturated, beyond the necessary, a glorious overkill. The dazed consequentiality of the figures leaps out to create improbable scenarios while preserving an internal cohesion, the way an oxymoron combines contradictory terms.
