DAVID J. MARCHI

Divergent Realities
November 8 - November 30, 2016
Reception: Thursday November 10, 2016 6-8 PM

David J. Marchi creates acrylic abstracts that dance with passion and unpredictability. He paints beautiful, riotous gradients, and then creates large-scale graphic designs on top. Often, elements clash – colors, patterns, or lines. His brushstrokes are free-form but his shapes are not; integrity of edge and form is always maintained. Marchi’s pieces are prime examples of energy harnessed.

Marchi paints with three guiding principles: color, texture, and pattern. He finds the vibrations between great contrasts in all three, taking a single painting from smooth to streaked, squared to rounded, and shimmering crimson to deepest blue. Each work is a jungle gym of visual frequencies, and yet Marchi is organized in his complexities – he never leaves a shade out or allows his composition to falter or wane. Once he decides on a graphic pattern, he sticks to it and fills out his canvas with satisfying thoroughness.
Marchi was born in Wallingford, Connecticut and today splits his time between New York City and Newfane, Vermont. He is collected widely, including by celebrities and collectors of abstract art.
