Michele Dragonetti: Under the Surface

MICHELE DRAGONETTI: UNDER THE SURFACE AT ROMAN FINE ART
September 29 – October 29, 2017
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, October 7, 6 – 8pm

Roman Fine Art is pleased to announce our upcoming solo exhibition of photographs by Michele Dragonetti, titled Under the Surface. This exhibition of Dragonetti’s Boat Hull series marks her first solo exhibit at Roman Fine Art. The exhibit will open with a reception for the artist Saturday, October 7, 6-8pm.

Michele Dragonetti’s Boat Hull series began in the marinas of Montauk where she was drawn to boats in need of repair and refurbishing. In this series Dragonetti focuses her compositions on the triangular patterns of the hulls in a square format, allowing her to highlight the essential geometry of the images. The work emphasizes the contrast between the abstract patterns of the painted lines and colors of the hulls, and the interplay of textures. The boats photographed in this series take on the quality of beautiful abstract, sometimes minimalist paintings. Photos in this ongoing series transform often humble vessels into striking portraits, celebrating their imperfect appeal.

Since Dragonetti began this series locally in 2013, the series has expanded beyond its East End origins to include images taken in Connecticut, Florida, California, Vermont, Argentina, Cuba, London, Lisbon, Barcelona and the southern coast of Portugal. Dragonetti continues to travel and document boat hulls for this ongoing series, expanding upon an incredibly large and diverse collection of compositions and colors.
