Born in 1953, Paolo Iacchetti first completed his studies in chemistry before turning to a career in art. At the Brera art academy in Milan he studied painting and was later appointed professor of painting technique, colour and the psychology of form. The examination of these thematic complexities is clearly reflected in Paolo Iacchetti’s artistic approach: from a distance his works at first appear as monochromes, but are surprisingly multi-layered when seen in detail. This effect arises from the overlay of various layers of paint and the way in which the paint itself is applied, sometimes lively and intuitive and sometimes rectilinear and minimalist.
Paolo Iacchetti thereby creates atmospherically charged colour surfaces which are capable of being both energetic and contemplative, which is why he himself feels that the Italian concept of “Indeterminatezza” - indeterminacy - is a fitting term for his work.
