Lines appear throughout August Ventimiglia’s art, from chalk line drawings to ink lines cut from the pages of a book. Lines are evocative of landscapes, timelines, trajectories, and the mark of a hand at work. His Borrowed Lines series is part collage, part found drawing, composed of the pages of classics of anthropology, literature, and mythology in which underlined text has been cut out leaving just the lines. He also uses the snap line, a construction tool, to make drawings. Ventimiglia has exhibited nationally, with solo shows at Matteawan Gallery; June Fitzpatrick Gallery, Portland, ME; and Judi Rotenberg Gallery, Boston, MA. His work has been featured in group exhibitions at 808 Gallery, Boston University, Boston, MA; the 2011 Portland Museum of Art Biennial in Maine; and the 2010 DeCordova Biennial, DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA. Ventimiglia received a BA in anthropology from The University of Pennsylvania and studied art and theory at the Maine College of Art. He lives in Wellesley, MA.
