Biography

Francesca DiMattio’s works offer trace visions of architecture and figures, but without a legible sense of space or narrative. The manipulated imagery references a wide range of sources, including Renaissance and Gothic architecture, classical sculpture, lace and quilt patterns, and the works of Francis Bacon. DiMattio, who describes her work as “getting into trouble and getting out of it,” is known to amalgamate abstraction and representation without fully embracing either style. Her paintings most often feature pared-down palettes of predominantly black, white, and gray, with accent colors. She is also known for a series of sculptures that fused parts of vases in jarringly different styles.
