DESCRIPTION

After making a splash with his vibrant colors in New York earlier this year, Patrick Dintino will be presenting his translation of recoded consumption to the color-conscious vibe of southern California. His latest paintings analyze the hypnotic glow of popular culture and mass media and its effect on the subconscious mind.

"...Dintino paints his canvases by hand, and that makes all the difference in the kind of pleasure we can take in
Dintino's work. It has an air of light handled that we see too seldom in contemporary painting."
Kenneth Baker, San Francisco Chronicle

“With paint, brush and canvas I engage in a performance similar to a scientific recording of identity, yet the spontaneity of vigorous brush strokes renders my personal visual experience.”    - Patrick Dintino
