CARLO ALACCHI

Beyond Borders: an Exhibition of Fine Art from Canada
October 9 – October 29, 2015
Reception: Thursday, October 15, 2015 6-8 PM

Carlo Alacchi creates visual depictions of the “unfolding world.” He works primarily in acrylic on canvas, but his pieces often include multimedia touches. Texture and abstract physical forms dominate his work, and recently he has been working on a project involving painting hubcaps found on the street. “The wheel is driving our evolution,” Alacchi says, but the hubcaps also remind him of planets, particles and molecules. Alacchi’s paintings speak to a multi-layered existence; human forms meld into colored backdrops, and textural combinations embody nature’s densely layered, experienced life.

In Alacchi’s paintings, image and color collide organically. He doesn’t plan his paintings in advance, but instead begins with a single line that slowly grows and takes shape. As a result, his paintings are very individual, comprised of forms that are both fluid and layered, filled with dense compartments and visual passageways. Further, they develop over time as Alacchi allows himself and viewers touch the works. "With every touch, it will change." He describes his tactile paintings as “explorations with eyes open or eyes closed.” 

Born and currently living in Montreal, Canada, Alacchi first began to paint while staying in NYC. It is fitting, therefore that his first gallery exhibition brings him back to Chelsea in Agora Gallery.
