About the Work
Francesca DiMattio’s Goblets are part of a larger body of work made in anticipation of company and celebration in a post-COVID world. The sculptural pinch-pots with thick stems were inspired by ornamental Roman goblets and jewelry, made to imitate the structural qualities of stone and metal. Their conspicuous gemstones and miscellaneous accessories were created from molds of her son’s toys, some of which vaguely reference the animals and symbols found in artifacts across ancient cultures. These embellishments include scarab beetles, storm troopers, and the familiar face of Sigourney Weaver in their over-the-top approach to match the occasion of coming together after more than a year of social distancing.
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. She lives and works in New York.

Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
