Combining the languages of Dada and Surrealism, Lucio Del Pezzo’s color etching is a diagrammatic study of six elements. Featuring a truncated pyramid, terraced steps of a ziggurat structure, typographical drafting lines, and wood grain detailing, his investigation seems to revolve around the unfolding of process and construction. The work reads like an exercise, as Del Pezzo appears to magnify and abstract details, isolating them from their larger whole.
Lucio Del Pezzo, b. 1933 Naples, is an Italian artist. He currently lives and works in Milan.
