Ron Agam & Marco Casentini
GR Gallery is proud to present the exhibition “Incandescent Chromophilia” by Ron Agam and Marco Casentini. Both Agam and Casentini are invested in researching and experimenting with hard-edged color field painting and geometry. The exhibition will feature 25 recent works by the two artists, engaging in a conversation about the infinite possibilities through which quadrilaterals—fixed on canvas through an exhilarating palette comparable to that of pop art—interact with one another. “Incandescent Chromophilia” aims to investigate the artistic output of two international, contemporary artists who not only share an affinity for geometry and kinetic shades, but also a deep connection with Italy, the country GR Gallery hails from. Marco Casentini is Italian, however now works primarily in California. Conversely, Ron Agam is French-Israeli and based in New York, with a deep love and appreciation for Italy and its art. Agam’s modern interpretation of the French flag is displayed at the French Embassy in New York City—next to Michelagelo’s Cupid.
