Fabian Marcaccio’s work investigates whether the traditional medium of painting can survive in the digital age. He has used printmaking and transfer techniques to make paintings and became well know in the 1990s for his sculptural manipulations of the two-dimensional surface of canvas. More recently, he has infused his painting process with digital and industrial techniques. The results are environmental works, animations, and “Paintants” that combine digitally manipulated imagery, sculptural forms, and three-dimensionally painted surfaces.
Fabian Marcaccio was born in 1963 in Rosario, Argentina where he attended the University of Philosophy. At age 22, he moved to New York City, where he continues to live and work. He has exhibited widely throughout the US, Europe and South America. In 2004, Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein organized a retrospective of his work, the same year that a solo exhibition of his work was mounted
at the Miami Art Museum.
