Having steeped himself in Italy's famous tradition of fresco painting, Giuseppe Caccavale (born 1960) has updated the genre, embracing its inherent properties-exposure to the elements, site-specificness-and its materials, such as river sand, lime, carbon and pigments dissolved in water. The beauty of Caccavale's frescoes lies in their evocation of these materials, and their earthiness.
