Andrew Iacobucci was born and currently works in Rome, where he graduated in Architecture in 2013. His thesis was a research on concurrent musical and architectural composition. The theme was based on the variation in rhythm, and how it articulates a series of musical and pictorial elements. This research on music and architecture continued in his artistic work, through a first phase of large paintings done in Beijing in 2014, where large masses of black paint fill the canvas with deep sounds. It then developed with a series on paper: a quick fire of thin lines (sometimes with ink, sometimes with paper cuts) inspired by the mathematical and aggregative compositions of Steve Reich. The latest works are focused on a new kind of code: the one of the street-based paints and colors, and how they are interpreted. As with music and its set of codes (notes, pauses and lines) so there is a code on the street, a proper language. This language is translated and articulated in a series of large paintings where the traces made with a specific instrument (the striper, used for road signs) is able to simultaneously constrain and enlarge the exploration of the trace.
Andrew Iacobucci is presenting his exhibition "The Minor Third" at Cheriff Tabet Gallery from February 19 to March 14, 2019.
