Paintings that vibrate
My friend Peter Lodato just had a show of his paintings at the William Turner Gallery in Bergamot Station. Peter has been meditating for years and I feel the vibration in his work is probably similar to his experiences while in mediatation. I have an earlier work that is a corner of a room and what is so deceiving about his seeming minimalist work is that there is so much life and energy in it. It still fascinates me after all of these years. He first started with architecture , then moved to rooms which then morphed into doorways as seen on top. I'm not sure what these stripes represent, I've never asked him, but these are the only paintings of stripes that I have ever liked. Some people have even felt dizzy looking at ones like the bottom one.
