Paul Catalanotto “Point A to Point B”
This event has ended.
“Point A to Point B”, a solo retrospective and residency with Paul Catalanotto.
Catalanotto is a Brooklyn based artist who creates colorful, evocative polished frescos using a unique plaster-based medium that he developed and mastered over many years.
“Point A” is a retrospective show that will provide a visual timeline exploring Paul’s journey in mastering and understanding his medium, and his evolution from experimenting with representational pieces to his abrupt shift to abstract art. Some of his earliest frescos are political in nature and one particularly controversial piece, garnered denunciating criticism from certain spectators. This led him to remove the
work from public viewing. His departure from contentious concepts, as well as his move to abstract art, will be explained though personal notes written on the walls.
Opening reception “Point A”:
Fri, Feb 3, 6 to 9 p.m.
Opening reception “Point B”:
Fri, Feb 24, 6 to 9 pm
During the “Point A” exhibition, Catalanotto will be creating new pieces in his studio within the BLAM Projects gallery. Visitors can view first-hand the layering, adding and scraping techniques used by the artist and speak with him about the ideas and theories that inform his creative process. Being able to use the entire gallery as a studio will allow the artist enough space to experiment in new ways and the show itself will constantly evolve as added thoughts are written on the walls and new art is created.
“Point B” opens February 24 and will be a show of the works created during Paul Catalanotto’s residency at Blam Projects. BLAM Projects are bicoastal, multi-platform exhibition and project spaces in Bushwick and downtown Los Angeles. They are designed to showcase a wide range of artists and curators from both sides of the country.
