The Infinite City: Michael Dal Cerro
On view through February 12, 2023
The Monmouth Museum
Lincroft, New Jersey

Michael Dal Cerro’s painstakingly crafted woodcut and linocut prints could be seen as playful architectural proposals. In his artwork, he explores a range of subjects such as urban planning, or lack thereof, overdevelopment and the commercialization of public space.

Dal Cerro suggests alternative possibilities with his idiosyncratic view of contemporary architectural design. His imaginary urban spaces, like real cities, are evolutionary creations that are the result of both chance and careful planning. “The Infinite City” keeps growing and adapting to new conditions. Blending traditional representation with two-dimensional design, the city sites are portrayed with assertive colors, and invented geometric and biomorphic shapes in a dynamic, multi-layered picture space.
