Francesco Clemente @ Deitch Projects

ARTmostfierce went downtown Saturday to the former gallery meca...SoHo. is still kind of happening down there.I started at Deitch Projets were painter Francesco Clemente was having a serious show packed wall to wall. I could not even get a picture.Great show got to see it.It was a big mob scene!

A History of the Heart in Three Rainbows, a monumental suite of large-scale watercolor paintings by Francesco Clemente, will be presented at Deitch Projects’s Wooster Street gallery in May. The paintings will wrap around the perimeter of the gallery, creating an atmosphere of contemplation and ritual. The work continues the artist’s ongoing project of transforming spiritual life experience into art. The lightness of the rainbow represents a breakthrough from the darkness, from the long night of the artist’s darker palette.
