Anthony Giannini's solo exihibition "Sun and Bones Below" at TPP

TPP is proud to present the new works of Anthony Giannini in the solo exhibition titled: “Sun and Bones Below” during the month of October. Giannini recently earned his MFA  in painting at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), received a grant from the Joan Mitchell Foundation in 2009 while working as assistant  to renowned artist Julie Mehretu.
This body of work mixes patterning, lines and shape, against fields of static color. Armature contours suspend familiar figurative orientation, creating relationships between elements that suggest movement. Teetering between figure and ground, the works traverse the fault-line between representation and abstraction. Rather than creating from direct observation, Giannini creates work out of adverse photographic references that are loaded and open to lyrical interpretation.

Giannni will show 18 new mixed media works on paper (17"x22" approximately) that will be priced at $400 each. This is a great opportunity to get to know and purchase the works of a rising star. Giannini’s work ethic and strong powerful works are sure to make an impact in the international art scene in the not so distant future. These work contain stong political themes and are relevant to the worlds everlasting love of war.
As usual we will be traveling with the works to all the different art schools in the main colleges and universities of the metropolitan area including the University of Puerto Rico (Rio Piedras), Universidad del Sagrado Corazon and Escuela de Artes Plasticas de San Juan.

We will be participating in the event "Los Muros Hablan" where we will be driving on Thursday around the city of Santurce and stopping on all the walls/murals the artists are working on. We will be participating at La Campechada in El Viejo San Juan from Friday October 12th until Sunday the 14th. We will be spotted tentatively in Calle San Sebastian in front of La Tortuga.
