FREDERICK DUIGNAN | Transcending Chaos

July 5 @ 2:00 pm - September 1 @ 6:00 pm

Cross Contemporary Art Projects presents the paintings of the late New York artist Frederick Duignan, curated by his wife, Sara Lynn Henry at Castello 925 in Venice, Italy. Duignan’s work is known not only for its variety of textures, washes and techniques, but also for its powerful abstract imagery. The paintings in this exhibit represent the last few years of work after receiving his diagnosis.  According to the curator, Sara Lynn Henry, ” (The artist)… started as a player in the 1980s East Village, NYC, when art burst forth as direct, unruly, naïve seeming, getting at raw personal matters of process and reality, accessing the unconscious as well as conscious intensities. For his process, Duignan took a collaborative role with paint itself, allowing it to flow, skein, drip, puddle, considering it to be an “animal, fiery with purpose…ignoring all rules, unafraid,” consequently imbuing his works with an insistent energy.”

About Frederick Duignan:

Born June 1, 1952 in Jersey City, NJ, Frederick Duignan attended St. Mary’s in Rutherford, NJ, then studied at St. Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, Indiana; the duCret Center of Art, Plainfield, NJ; and obtained a BA in Fine Art and graduate certificate from University of California, Santa Cruz.  Over the years he worked as a Curator of Contemporary Art at the Paterson Museum, an art critic, and always as a master artist/poet.
