Bernardo Pacquing’s mixed-media assemblages and abstract paintings harken back to the midcentury tradition of blurring art and life. Inspired by the overlooked traces of urban life, Pacquing collects ephemera and detritus from the street, arranging it in elaborate assemblages that invoke the Arte Povera movement and artists such as Kurt Schwitters and Robert Rauschenberg in his democratic approach to materials. Pacquing also paints large-scale, abstract, and loosely gestural compositions over fields of jagged oil paint, which suggest the unremarkable corners of the urban landscape, reimagined.
