Since the 1980s, Eugene Carchesio has produced small scale drawings, watercolours and minute cardboard sculptures. Carefully placed elements of geometric abstraction and figurative symbolism coalesce within his compositions, forming an ontological space emptied of the clutter of everyday life. Carchesio is unconcerned with durability, instead favouring the fragility and uncertainty of ephemeral materials such as matchboxes and paper ephemera. His quietly focused, intimate works stand in contrast to increasingly glossy, inflated modes of contemporary art and provide us with moments of welcome reprieve amid the chaos of modern life.
