This month Deli Grocery is having an online exclusive show featuring the work of Julian Lombardi. In June Julian came to New York to complete a one month residency in Ridgewood where he created a body of work focusing on medium to large scale abstract paintings.
Julian Lombardi uses black tones to create marks that heavily intertwine, weave and disappear into each other expressing his memories of being a financial manager in a corporate environment. His technique of spraying and smearing, allows depth and multiple layers. These gestural marks are similar to the corporate process of constant review and change. Digital marks are then added on top to illustrate the reliance of technology in the corporate world. As a whole these layers allow the viewer to see how the world can be fervent as it is structured and rigid.
