Salvatore Federico

New York, New York, USA

The forms in my paintings are configured on a hexagonal grid. It is divided into a series of third and half spatial measures. Most of the time, the forms are designed for a rhythmic visual movement that will turn and lift inside a volume of pure color. The rectangle is proportioned around the form in a contingent equilibrium. My freedom to improvise within predetermined limits allows for endless invention. Visual clarity, speed, and a kind of plastic tension gain from the sharp contrasts of pure color. The facture is developed after several layers of paint have been applied to the coarsely threaded ground. I associate the immaculate look with a certain numinosity.
