The canvases of Francesco Clemente take on three dimensional space with a new body of work at Mary Boone Gallery. Nostalgia/Utopia immediately reminds of the gallery’s recent exhibition of David Salle with large format paintings intersected with unexpected objects. Clemente’s references are varied and intentionally vague which allows viewers to freely interpret the imagery, objects and narrative.
Nostalgia/Utopia is on view through June 30th 2012 at Mary Boone Gallery, 541 West 24th Street, New York. Photo and text Juliana Balestin
