Emanuele Cacciatore creates paintings that address how we perceive and develop painterly content. Since the work is not defined by modernist aesthetics, contemporary thought, or even artistic intuition alone, he is free to discover and create with unlimited possibility as he questions and enriches preconceived notions of gestural painting.
Cacciatore’s paintings are not simply expressionistic or emotive works of art. The brush strokes and forms that make up the pieces are actually constructed and/or found through accidental, intentional, and mechanical manipulation of the paint and surface. Brushes, stencils, masks, and various industrial tools and painting techniques (both additive and subtractive) are implemented to create the artwork. Ultimately, the pieces are comprised of a combination of separate canvases or isolated sections that either support similarities or contrast the diverse painting methods and forms employed.
Although the art making process is indeed evident in the paintings, they are by no means about appropriation or detached imitation of gesture. The paintings are an unconventional documentation and realization of gestural painting, reflecting both concrete and ephemeral reorganization of form, space, and time.
