Recent paintings by Andy Piedilato at gallery Danese/Corey in New York City.
Hey New Yorkers, here comes a great exhibition you shouldn’t miss. A collection of recent paintings by Andy Piedilato is currently on display at gallery Danese/Corey. Inspired by his friend’s passion for boat building, Andy Piedilato’s latest series of large, imposing artworks exposes the strange beauty of shipwrecks. Furthermore, they convey a timeless fascination with natural disasters, storms, and the raging sea. The artist has masterfully created a dialogue between narrative and intentionally chaotic abstraction. Made with a mix of house paint and alkyd medium, his colorful paintings offer multi-layered surfaces. Please read more below.
Born in Athens, GA, Andy Piedilato currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. The artist received a MFA in Painting from Pratt Institute, NY, and has a BFA in Painting from the University of Georgia. He is the recipient of the 2015 Rosenthal Family Foundation Award in Painting honoring “a young American painter of distinction.” He also received the George Segal Grant in 2005, and was nominated for the Lambent Fellowship in 2006.
