ABOUT THE WORK
Francesca DiMattio’s body of work reflects the tenuous balance between stasis and transformation. Objects are evocative — a sentimental vase, a coveted China ware — as is their destruction — a hairline crack, shattered glass and debris. Exploring motifs traditionally associated with femininity and domesticity, DiMattio’s process involves mutating and reassembling recognizable elements into non-hierarchical compositions, challenging the notion of a fixed image. GOBLETS is our second release with DiMattio. The series comprises 10 pairs of original sculptural works created in the artist's studio.
Francesca DiMattio has held solo exhibitions at Pippy Houldsworth Gallery (London), Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (North Adams, MA), Statues of Art Omi (Ghent, NY), Salon 94 Bowery (New York, NY), Blaffer Art Museum (Houston, TX), and the Zabludowicz Collection (London). Select group exhibitions include presentations at Nina Johnson (Miami, FL), the 2019 Invitational Exhibition of Visual Arts at the American Academy of Arts and Letters (New York, NY), and the Kimball Art Center (Park City, UT). The artist’s work is in the collections of the Perez Art Museum (Miami, FL), the Frances Young Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College (Saratoga Springs, NY), the Everson Museum of Art (Syracuse, NY), the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University (Waltham, MA), the Saatchi Gallery (London), and the Zabludowicz Collection.
