Andrew Iacobucci

Andrew Iacobucci (b. Rome, 1986) reflects on the limits and possibilities of signs. During his architecture degree, he travelled to China for cultural exchange, an where he came into contact with the oriental sign. His work crosses paths with fashion (where texture and gradation of fabric are pictorial elements), semiotics (in a reinterpretation of codes stripped of a scientific purpose) and architecture. In this series of works the graphemes of children not yet literate were converted into digital files, then re-edited on canvas with industrial embroidery. Not simply painting but selection and post-production. In general, the artist explores language in its attempts and failures.
