GABRIEL RIGGIONI

Mélange of Milieu
June 14 – July 5, 2016
Reception: Thursday, June 16, 2016 6-8 PM

Exploring a variety of materials, from acrylic paint and resins on canvas to prints and vinyl, Gabriel Riggioni taps into a pop art sensibility. Cheerful, bright colors and repeated patterns serve as a platform for varying states of abstraction. Riggioni employs forms like cows and bulls, spread among his canvases and treated with different attitudes towards repetition and reality. In many works, uniformity is disrupted by the breakdown of a simple dot pattern or the introduction of a piece of pattern unlike the others. In other pieces, his impulse to abstract and echo manifests in completely nonrepresentational explorations of color and texture. These paintings still somehow reference the play of regularity and organic unpredictability in Riggioni’s other works. An exploration of pigment, material, abstraction, and mood is at the forefront in each painting.
Gabriel Riggioni works from San José, Costa Rica and lives thirty minutes outside the city center. The nature he lives with and grew up among provides the rich colors and textures for his work.
