“Visual intimacy is among the most honest, primal relationships we have with our perceptual world. Intuition predates the analytic mind. And it is at threat in a culture that values logic over emotion. It is at threat in an art world that values conceptualization over visual intimacy.” Jason Stopa
PAINT PLETHORA is a group show consisting of artists that use paint with an intuitive approach. Be it abstractions, semi-figurative, narrative paintings, photography, or video, the artists of PAINT PLETHORA are interested in creating a “visual intimacy.” The brilliant artistic misfits in this show are foremost painters. Coming from different backgrounds, they weave their plethora of influences with the poetic, reflective and at times ironically humorous. By emphasizing the visceral, they do not shy away from the essence of what painting is. These artists let their expansiveness of paint do the speaking for them. Exhibiting in PAINT PLETHORA are Anthony Harazin, Bernardo Palau, Carlo Ricafort, Colleen Flaherty, Dominic Alleluia, Juan Carlos Quintana, and Nelson E. Enriquez.
