Statement

 In Robert DiMatteo's most recent work the artist has begun a series of paintings based on the Periodic Table of Elements. 

The use of aperiodic tiling creates the structural basis for the design and realization of each element. Aperiodic tiling, simply explained, is essentially a situation where there is a pattern present that is not translatable as it fills a given plane. It has the look of a repetitive pattern but is in fact non repetitive. This is the starting point from which DiMatteo builds the structure for each element.  The polygon used is derived from the actual structural form of the element. Color and surface always paramount in Mr. DiMatteo's work continue in this vein as he takes it up a notch with more nuanced textured surfaces and oddly harmonious color orchestration.

Each element is presented with 28 X 28 inch painting (with the exception of Hydrogen), which reflects the idea of the structural architecture of the given element. DiMatteo also presents two works on paper for the given element, one as a charged, energetic color filled gouache 26 x 20 inch that mirrors the atomic energy of the given element and a drawing, produced with graphite and acrylic, that is a combination of the structure and energy of the element.
