"Joseph Marioni is one of the most revered artists working in the European art scene. He is celebrated in countries like Switzerland and
Germany where he exhibits widely in both museums and galleries and is
collected widely in the public and private sectors… The vivid psyche and relentless imagination of the Painter Joseph
Marioni lead us into visual mindscapes whose surfaces are at once
calming and adventurous."
Despite the fact that abstraction is still alive (bleeding out of its ears, but still very much alive) I cannot agree that Marioni is doing it any good. Fried’s grasping at straws sounds like Pat Buchanan on Rachel Maddow. Macaroni will go over in SA like a lead balloon, but don’t forget what they say…
