My friend Luca is exhibiting "Spolia" opening tomorrow evening at Neubacher-Shor in Toronto. As you can see he's a very good painter. I like the ambiguous narratives he creates, they blur the boundaries of materiality, yet still maintain the formal qualities of gesture and collage. I especially like the idea of using the viewer as a visual consumer who ingests, processes, interprets and ultimately contributes to our consensual reality. Through paint Luca continues to explore how we, in seemingly benign and mundane ways, have the facility to create, shape and brand cultural paradigms. Check it!
