The works at Fred.Giampietro harmonize in terms of their noxious, neon palette, as well as the dialogue, revolving around chaos and visceral corporeality, that is created between the works. Both artists develop work as an extension of the physical and psychological capacity of the human body. In Keeting’s paintings, thick, arm-lengthed brushstrokes and blotted impressions indicate the process of their making, while Vassoughi’s biomorphic, materially collaged forms remind of the relationship between anatomy and identity. Each artist experiments with a mad, loose-handed assembly in their chosen medium, building an uncanny symbiosis between the body of the artist, the viewer, and the work itself.
