DiMattio’s dizzying, perspective-defying paintings weave together disparate objects—from construction cranes to disco balls—in a tangled web.
The New York-based painter combines imagery from a wide range of architectural, decorative, and art historical sources. She laces together underlying patterns to construct these complicated compositions, lending a sense of logic to her seemingly chaotic assemblages. The artist has described her working practice as “getting into trouble and getting out of it.”
DiMattio has transformed the Sandra and Gerald Fineberg Art Wall with a complex composition made up of five large-scale canvases. Drawing inspiration from the ICA's dramatic architecture and waterfront setting, Banquet combines interior and exterior space and incorporates images of ships and the sea.
