On view at the Deitch Projects Wooster Street Gallery is The History of the Heart in Three Rainbows, a new series of large-scale watercolor paintings by Francesco Clemente . For this series, Clemente has literally wrapped the gallery with his new water colors, creating an immersive environment for contemplation. The artist has also continues his use of capturing spiritual experiences through art. As the title suggests, the rainbows are a metaphor for a bridge, connecting the body to more religious or spiritual ideas.
The Italian born artist’s work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions and retrospectives. The artist has completed major exhibitions at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Royal Academy of the Arts and the Pompidou among many others.
