This event has ended.

Filomeno's practice combines classical painting with the traditional craft of embroidery; the results defy and transcend both. Incorporating such luxurious materials as shantung silk, crystals, and onyx throughout intricate and meticulous designs, the paintings are inherently sensual and further seduce with their painstaking technique. In contrast with the immediate allure of the surface, Filomeno's tableaus are filled with a motley array of macabre characters--skeletons, beasts, insects, limbs, feces. Whimsical and eccentric, the imagery is not ironic but rather strongly personal and symbolic. Fragility, mutability, anxiety, and passion imbue the work.
