Fabian Marcaccio

Fabian Marcaccio combines painterly marks with digital copies of painterly marks, oversized images of canvas textures stuck onto canvas; the painting surface itself may be stretched, warped, and tethered to its surroundings, his work seems to explore how painting can persist in the technological age and speaks of a sublime of excess, aesthetically grotesque. it visually appeals to me in the way flesh does in a Lucien Freud or Jenny Saville painting. This fusion of the traditional and digital, as well as his experiments creating painterly environments, makes Marcaccio a key reference for my own investigation into a contemporary sublime.
