The Maltese Embassy Presents:

Frank Theophani Callozzo


Opening reception Friday, August 12, 2011 from 7-10PM
Exhibition on view through September 24, 2011

 SAN FRANCISCO, JULY 18, 2011 – The Maltese Embassy is pleased to present new paintings and drawings by Oakland artist Frank Theophani Callozzo. The exhibition runs from August 12th to September 24th, 2011 at Satellite66, a new art gallery in San Francisco. An opening reception will be held on Friday, August 12thfrom 7-10PM and is free and open to the public.

Frank Theophani Callozzo’s glyphic imagery evokes archetypal approaches to narrative symbol. Made of close-knit, geometric lines and cascading colored dots, Callozzo’s abstract totemic figures and nonrepresentational forms call to mind ancient petroglyphs and form constants (geometric patterns often observed during altered states of consciousness). Floating in space and free of context, Callozzo’s almost shamanistic drawings are structures of cosmological and mystical wonder surrounded by a culture increasingly dominated by logos.

The Maltese Embassy is an ongoing curatorial project, hosted by Satellite66 in San Francisco. A tiny ambassador of art, the Embassy is dedicated to showcasing emerging artists with a focus on craftsmanship, concept, and aesthetic. We strive to encourage the creative act by enriching the public with art exhibits and by connecting fine artworks with those who desire them, be they seasoned collectors, businesses, or first-time art buyers.
