Julio Panisello: Miracles of the Dough
Saturday, March 16, 2013 from 3-6pm
The Velaslavasay Panorama, West Adams
1122 West 24th St., Los Angeles, CA 90007
ShoeboxLA is pleased to present Julio Panisello: Miracles of the Dough. Employing old master techniques utilizing egg tempera painting, charcoal, and gold leaf to develop a modern recreation of a Renaissance self-portrait series, Julio Panisello offers us artwork in edible media which recreates history and celebrates the modern artist.
The sundried conspersam farinam (salt dough) used in this four-triptych series is durable yet fragile. Installed within the gallery environment, these ultimately perishable triptychs will expand and contract over time depending on weather conditions, commenting on the inexorability of time and the inevitability of decay.
Julio Panisello earned his BFA (cum laude) in Painting and a postgraduate degree in Pegadogy from the University of Barcelona, Catalonia. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
Now in its second year, ShoeboxLA gives Los Angeles artists an opportunity to do one-day, site-specific exhibitions outside the traditional gallery setting. Artists and founders Sophia Allison and Paul W. Evans provide an intimate space that challenges artists' and viewers' expectations of size and scale. Locations change for each show but the space remains the same.
The Velaslavasay Panorama, located in the West Adams Historic District, is an exhibition hall, theatre and garden dedicated to the production and presentation of unusual visual experiences, including those of the 360-degree variety: www.panoramaonview.org
