John Yau looks at new work by artist Fabian Marcaccio.

Yau writes that Marcaccio's "recurring subject is the repeated and insistent destruction of the human body. Marcaccio has juiced Gerhardt Richter's flatfooted pictoriality into something visceral and strange. He has gone way beyond the photographic blur into a sci-fi realm where deformation is the norm."
