Somerville Manning Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings by Francis DiFronzo from October 16 – November 14, 2020. Francis Di Fronzo depicts scenes that are both beautiful and poetic, but also deeply personal and mysterious. Executed with keen attention to detail, his paintings represent a significant departure from more traditional forms of realism. Instead of working from direct observation, the works so carefully depicted in Di Fronzo’s paintings are created purely from the artist’s imagination. The results of his unique approach are paintings that are visually intense, lyrical and expressive. Di Fronzo transforms the ephemera of American landscapes into visions of unwavering intensity, convincing us that even the most unassuming territory is never as straightforward as it initially appears.
