About

Mark Acetelli’s oil and mixed media paintings awaken the viewer’s sense of exploration and adventure; they demand a new discovery. His artworks exhibit a chemistry of complexity and spontaneity, a lyrical abstraction of frenzied marks, many of which previously lay hidden, buried beneath strong layers of self-taught expression. Those truths, first obscured and then obvious, aim to engage the viewer, allowing them to explore their own interpretation. His figurative abstract artworks are represented by Artplex Gallery in Los Angeles and have been exhibited and collected worldwide, including London, New York, and Hong Kong.

This figurative abstract oil painting on canvas is 48 inches square. It is wired and ready to hang. The sides of the artwork are painted and it does not require framing. It is signed by the artist on the front of the artwork and titled on the back. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable U.S. and international shipping available. A certificate of authenticity issued by Artplex Gallery is included.

Mark Acetelli was born in Detroit into an artistic household. Mark’s mother herself was a painter and some of his earliest memories were the smell of turpentine and oil paints. Growing up surrounded by his mother's work, she inspired and encouraged him to become an artist.

Acetelli’s paintings are inspired by the intensely personal introspective journey of life, from the ever-changing complexities of love, loss, birth, and death. The context of his work he describes as, “Absence and Presence” pertaining to how someone or something can be physically gone, but the essence still remains. Capturing the physical mixed with spirituality on canvas. His application of paint is an extension of that thought process. He works by continuously building up and tearing down, layer upon layer, adding and subtracting. A visceral dance between the conscious and the unconscious until the emotion is expressed.

Acetelli’s oil paintings may go through multiple incarnations with the past lying just beneath the surface, adding to its overall dimension and depth. In his work, Acetelli seeks to evoke a feeling rather than depict a defined image. He uses primarily oils and encaustics to create thickly layered canvases with emotive bursts of color. Creating a world where imagination and reality come together. Acetelli’s works can be found in many private and corporate collections around the world, including Bill Withers, Lisa Colburn, Colburn School of Music, Raytheon Corp, Universal Studios, Warner Brothers, Michael Jordan, Stuart Beattie, Claire Forlani, Camryn Manheim, and Francine Maisler.

Mark Acetelli

Mark Acetelli’s paintings exist to awaken your sense of exploration and adventure. The artist's use of shadow and silhouette creates a characteristic freedom from detailed representation and draws from contemplative discovery. A chemistry of complexity and spontaneity, lyrical abstraction of reflection and mental retreats, reveal thick paint marks buried beneath strong layers of self-taught expression. Acetelli uses powerful gestural brushwork to reveal the narrative possibilities in the border area between reality and fantasy. Reminiscent of Italian artist Alberto Giacometti's figures, Acetelli's figures take on a sculptural form within the minimal dimensionality of the surface of the canvas allowing the viewer to imagine movement, motion, and intention.
