Marco Casentini’s latest body of work finds him expanding on the geometric structures of previous works through the addition of layers of elaborate linear forms. Built up through hundreds of criss-crossing painted lines, Casentini’s gridded overlays both obscure and highlight the color forms beneath them, allowing for complex visual interplays. In other works, he deploys fields of contrasting vertical or horizontal stripes to similar effect. By overlapping veils of linear color over geometric shapes, Casentini creates elaborate paintings full of vibrancy, rhythm, and visual nuance.
Born in La Spezia, Italy in 1961, Casentini studied painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Carrara, Italy.
