Zachary Keeting and Christopher Joy visit the studio of painter Fabian Marcaccio.

Marcaccio discusses his large scale "environmental" paintings which he describes as "creating a zone where your peripheral vision and your central vision can could keep putting together parts of the painting so the painting really is not an object but is a zone. It is actually a spatial, temporary situation, an expansion of the painting… you can see details that get at a totality."

Marcaccio argues that great painting is about amplification. "There is something that I chase," he says "that is how to amplify the given rhetorics of painting in order to let you have an intimacy with it."
