Ernesto Renda - Frottage Works

February 3 – 27


“These pastel frottages (rubbings) are made with a relief of my fingerprint and other images traced in twine. Much like the pixel structure of screens, the frottage patterns precede the image and the application of color and light.” The Marcel Schein works in this exhibition are named for the artist’s great-grandfather who studied cosmic ray physics in the 1940s.
