The exhibit is on view from November 4 through December 28, 2013.

Cianne Fragione’s art pours over with the physical material of paint and mark-making as an act of exploration. Her complex use of color and her layered covering up of forms create images that reveal themselves slowly and with great reward.

An inheritor of the San Francisco Bay school of abstract expressionism, her paintings possess the unique quality of appearing large no matter what size they are. Each carries a sophistication that can only be built through years of work in the studio. They are contemporary and also firmly rooted in the uniquely American abstract expressionist tradition.

This exhibition at the Brentwood Arts Exchange will present a selection of new works inspired by her residencies in Southern Italy alongside a 180 degree nearly panoramic-style installation of her “Heaven and Earth” series developed from her work at Pennsylvania’s Soaring Gardens.
