About Mark Acetelli

Using oil paints and found objects that he builds up and scrapes away to create layered, textured compositions, Mark Acetelli depicts featureless, anonymous figures that verge on abstraction. He has explored wide-ranging, universal themes including love, loss, and notions of absence and presence. Acetelli works in a palette dominated by earth tones, which he punctuates with colorful accents, and has said that he aims to produce works that capture “the elegance of decay” and evoke a feeling rather than a defined image.

American, b. 1969, Detroit, Michigan, based in Los Angeles, California; Memphis, Tennessee
