The central focus of Zecca’s practice continues to be about process and color mixing. Zecca’s system is a specific and exacting methodology as is his exercise in focus and precision. His hand-drawn works marry a sense of the scientific with the art of craft, the conceptual with the handmade.
The new pieces expand on the artist’s obsessive and precise technique but present fresh variations on his time-intensive practice of accumulating thousands of colored, ruled lines. His cumulative sequences of inked lines on paper are then cut into strips, reconfigured, and mounted on plywood panels. The end results are bigger areas of saturated color and bolder, more active paintings. The vibrant abstractions, each made of the literal recording of innumerable, painstakingly rendered marks, are made with only a pen and straight edge.
