Thomas Frontini Modern Ruin

August 12–September 23

Gallery Reception: Friday,  August 26, 6:00–8:00 pm


Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present Modern Ruin, paintings by Thomas Frontini. His current body of artwork combines detailed images with atmospheric backgrounds. The dreamlike imagery balances contemporary objects with historical influences. His paintings explore magic in the mundane and draw from his subconscious. 


Frontini’s palette and technique are directly influenced by his Italian heritage and Italian art history. Immense landscapes stretch out around intricately painted flora and fauna. Tiny scenes of futuristic habitats dot thickly painted cliff faces and clouds. In a carefully measured vagueness, Frontini’s paintings address not only the seen world, but a world of puzzling fantasies. 


Thomas Frontini’s education began in art restoration and conservation in Florence, Italy. He received a BFA at the Cleveland Institute of Art and a MFA from Ohio State University, Columbus. He has exhibited throughout Canada, the United States, and Hong Kong and is in numerous collections both private and public, including the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul and the Cleveland Clinic. Born and raised in Canada, Frontini currently lives in Cleveland, OH.
