Over the last decade and a half, Fabrizio Gerbino has developed a style of painting formal and exacting, though thoroughly original in its balance and organic expression. He will exhibit both new and previous works at 5151 Penn Avenue this December. Though best known for his painting, Mr. Gerbino includes an example of his sculptural work in his latest show, Tria Prima.
Contemporary art curator and former art critic for the Tribune-Review Graham Shearing, says Gerbino's pallet of greys, sulphur yellows, and black evokes, "the language of formal philosophy, theology and even alchemy," with an effect that is "poignant, sad and not a little beautiful."
