Eugene Carchesio: Long Day’s Journey Into Light
Eugene Carchesio collects the images that emerge from the subconscious. Since the early 1980s he has built a solid reputation producing small scale watercolours and minute sculpture. Carchesio’s works fuse plays with geometric patterns and figurative symbolism. Through his subtle images Carchesio attempts to create an ontological space emptied of the clutter of everyday life, in which imagery from the subconscious can emerge. His considered placement of interlocking shapes alludes to the science of mathematics and highlights his interest in the purity of shapes and geometry. There is a distinct emphasis on process in Carchesio’s intimate works, this becomes manifest through the visible inconsistencies and variations of pigment application that can be observed in his works.
Eugene Carchesio will be showcasing his newest exhibition, Long Day’s Journey Into Light, at the Milani Gallery from March 5 until March 23.
