DESCRIPTION

ART 1307 LLC and DCA Fine Art presents:

Breaking the Molds: TTOZOI in Evolution

Italian art duo: Stefano Forgione and Pino Rossi.

Curated by Peter Frank.

“Breaking the Molds: TTOZOI in Evolution” featured the recent works by the internationally acclaimed duo TTOZOI. Watch the video of this exhibition.

Naples-based Stefano Forgione and Pino Rossi have pioneered the use of organic molds to produce paintings. They spread the canvas with wheat flour and water and then they incubate the entire canvas to produce molds. Throughout the entire process TTOZOI “conducts” the molds’ progress, through action painting, moving the flour and water to change the shape and color of the growth. The duo determines when the molds have reached their aesthetic limit, freezing them in place. Watch a video about this process.

As critic Peter Frank, curator of this exhibition, write, “Natural substances have always provided artists with their materials and over the last half century artists have been working with nature's own processes to create art. But TTOZOI combines the old tradition and the new, prompting nature to paint its own paintings. TTOZOI allows nature to participate actively in the current artistic discourse not just as subject but as author. TTOZOI is not just a collaboration between two humans, but a collaboration between two humans and their ecosystem.”
