Painting in a calligraphic, non-alphabetic lexicon, Luciano Di Concetto explores rich expressions of color in his artworks. Through obsessively repetitive patterns and deconstructed geometric forms, Di Concetto builds mixed-media mandalas that balance intensity with calm, and dense color with light lines. The resulting image is one that is enigmatic and dreamlike, appearing to be perpetually in motion. Employing gingko and poppy as both visual and conceptual recurring symbols, Di Concetto favors the former for its strength, and the latter for its seductive fragility. These two contrasting themes unite and cohere under Di Concetto’s precise, measured gestures, exposing an unendingly influential and powerful energy. Di Concetto’s paintings are alluringly contemplative, imbued with tactile and tangible qualities.
