DOMINIQUE CRACCO

The French Perspective: Contemporary Art from France
July 8 – July 28, 2016
Reception: Thursday, July 14, 2016 6-8 PM


The highly emotive oil on canvas paintings of French artist Dominique Cracco demonstrate the particular genius that’s unleashed when the tenets of impressionism are merged with visual languages of meaning. Cracco’s work is both visually compelling and replete with significance, as he seeks to delve beyond the surface representations of his subjects to reveal the weakness of humankind and the dark undercurrents of emotion that can underscore the most idyllic of contexts.

Cracco’s artistic journey has been fascinating indeed. After building a career as a urologist, Cracco first started with watercolors and a post-impressionist style and then turned toward abstraction as a more powerful means of expression. Today, one can find all these influences in his work, as he incorporates three-dimensional modeling alongside expressionistic and abstract elements. What results are paintings stunning in both visual form and symbolic importance, offering the viewer an essential glimpse into the greater implications of our modern world.

Dominique Cracco currently lives and works in Avesnois, in the north of France, where he is also a self-taught baroque musician.
