8 Artists To Catch At New York’s Armory Week

 Domingo Guccione

The artist is an overlooked master of hard-edge abstraction, with spiritual tendencies. Guccione, who lived from 1898 to 1966, left behind a huge archive of drawings, some of which are on view here at the Ricco/Maresca Gallery booth at Independent. You can see how much the artist dug his graphite pencil into the paper, it is embedded there forever. The gallery calls the artist's work “kaleidoscopic arrangements, where geometric patterns intertwine with irregular linear shapes,” but the real magic is the story behind his illustrious life: The artist was born in Buenos Aires to Italian parents, trained as a classical musician, but became a visual artist, despite being color blind.
