"Piemonte’s first forays into landscape painting are punctured by the unsettling and whimsical hanging of toy cars from the bows of tree branches; surrealist portraiture sees the cars approaching abstraction as they dissolve towards the bottom of the canvases while anthropomorphically positioned akin to classical sitters; realism positions the retro muscle car upon a tabletop - knife adjacent - with an absent section supposedly sliced away. The titles of select works, such as ‘Should we walk? It's really beautiful out. No’ and ‘You've been in a funny mood lately’ echo the banal, absurdist nature of the artworks themselves, which exist seemingly without purpose, purely to commemorate the pointless beauty of painting."

Excerpt from the exhibition text for Marco Piemonte's solo exhibition "The Accidents Maker", written by Hector Campbell, Art Historian, Writer & Curator.
