About the Artist: For several years following his graduation from the Academy of Art College, San Francisco, CA, artist Alan Mazzetti worked as a graphic designer. He designed book jackets, an art that directed him toward illustration. His progression from graphic designer to illustrator of book jackets to fine artist evolved naturally. Today his primary focus is on fine art.
All of Alan's work involves collage, found materials, photo transfers and colored papers that interact with layers of painted color and texture. His paintings mirror all aspects of his development into a fine artist. His evolution is reflected in the photographic passages that emerge subtly as storytelling elements that become both complimentary and secondary to the color, texture and the composition overall.
"The Passaggio and The Entrata series, part of a larger travel-based body of work are inspired by memories and images of a few days spent in the lake region of central Italy. In the middle of Lago d'Orta is a monastery (and bakery) full of gardens and ironwork that became the basis for this work. I hope to evoke the sense of beauty, mystery and discovery I felt while roaming this island.
