…the older I get the less I know
I recently turned 60 and was having a day of doubts. A collection of peanut shells scattered on the table before me, looking closely at these shells, I saw valleys and mountains – a world of peace and contemplation – the conceit of scale became only too clear.
– Eugene Carchesio, 2021
from here to here features a selection of recent works on paper and wall-based sculptures by Eugene Carchesio. In this show, the artist continues his exploration into the methods in which pattern, colour, positive and negative space influence presentations and concepts of abstraction. Once again, Carchesio encourages the viewer to look closely at his small-scaled artworks and discover that which encapsulates the characteristics of something much larger.
