When it comes to subtlety, form and texture then Fernando Mastrangelo most certainly missed NOTHING in encompassing all those ideals with this first solo exhibition that opened last March 12th. Letting the material shine and the form speak for itself seemed to be the idiom of the day and with the very skilled craftsmanship by this artist, the pieces are really saying everything worth noticing in the massive sculptures and wall art. It takes sheer talent to exude color, movement and quiet elegance with the strategic use of material. Nothing is wasted or going to be ignored as the series begs for your undivided attention. Look. See. Feel. If this show doesn’t do it for you, then NOTHING will.
