Richard Carboni

USA b. 1952
1981 mixed media 33 x 22
    Poet and artist Carboni graduated Art & Design High School in New York City in 1970. A graduate of Hunter College, Carboni earned a master of fine arts degree at Pratt Institute, and he has received grants from the Ariana Foundation for the Arts and the Ford Foundation. His work was featured in Arts Magazine in 1983.

    Carboni has exhibited his works in numerous solo shows in New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C., and in group shows at the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Butler Institute of Art in Youngstown. A group o his works at the Butler in 1986 drew the following critical comment:  “Richard Carboni has the'gift of transforming the abstract i n to the comfortably familiar.”. At that time, he had had three earlier solo shows. His works are included in numerous public and private collections. The Museum of Modern Art offered his work through their art lending program.
    His 2003 a one-person show of works on paper in the Ben Shahn Galleries at William Paterson University drew praises. "Carboni’s symbols remain deliberately schematic," says the art critic Eleanor Heartney. "His constructed paintings walk the line between reduction and metaphor."

    According to Carboni, by combining divergent elements of landscape, abstraction and symbolism, "I hope to create an art of disjuncture that is poetic in its ambivalence. In the end," he says, "revealing the artifice of painting is as necessary as creating the illusions."
