An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist. I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to. The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Vincent Lardieri.

“My work can sometimes be considered “paint-centric”, however, medium specificity is not the primary concern in every artwork. Purely traditional and serial practices are banal, so I exercise an “anything goes” mentality with materials and techniques, but clash them with standard fine art elements, resulting in an anticipated relevancy and reinvigoration.
Most of the work exists in a limbo state – operating as both paintings and sculptures (and oftentimes multi-media amalgamations) – but also being none of these (because they are not definitively one or the other). The metamodern case for “both – neither” fits my work in that I refuse the pigeonhole, allowing for it to remain in a limbo state, where what specifically results is always up for debate.” VL
