GENESES : New Paintings by Luca De Gaetano

May 04 - June 30, 2018 Request information about this piece


Luca De Gaetano’s paintings are saturated with desire and delight. With a passionate, sophisticated eye, he surveys the intertwining landscape of sensations, hopes, dreads, dreams, ideas and mythologies that mark our sojourn through the wonderful, terrifying world of human experience. In  this suite of paintings De Gaetano is particularly interested in the transitions between being and non-being, the various comings apart that mark the end of one thing, and the various comings together that mark a fresh beginning.

GENESES will be on view at Matter & Light from May 4th – June 30th, 2018
