A Solo Exhibition by Matthew Lauretti
Italian-American artist, Matthew Lauretti's exhibition at the Ward-Nasse Gallery will feature his latest works, large-scale, calligraphic-style graffiti paintings about New York.
Lauretti's work juxtaposes materials to reveal tensions-between the natural and the man-made, the city and suburbia, class and culture-creating a record of our desires, obsessions, and excesses. Twentieth-century art movements such as Assemblage, Surrealism, and Arte Povera are revisited and updated by the artist highlighting his capacity to express humor, poetry, and greatness through humble means. His approach illustrates the characteristic strengths-and, at times, the principal weakness-of arts traditions.
