About Francesca DiMattio

Francesca DiMattio (American, b. 1981) is painter and sculptor who received her BFA from Cooper Union and MFA from Columbia University in 2005. Her paintings use architecture as a base structure that she disassembles and complicates by a profusion of marks, constructions and decorations. Like much post-modernist architecture, it is impossible to locate a stable center around which the structures and spaces revolve. Exhaustingly intricate, the paintings use decoration as a deconstructive principle and create visual effects and illusions that are both striking and unsettling. DiMattio lives and works in New York.
