solo art show at Dallas Jesuit Museum April 9, 5-7 PM


 
Lattanzio goes back to his graphic roots with this new show: kNOw JUSTICE, kNOw PEACE. Large abstract color projections are beamed onto his low relief wood sculpture, fleshing out the lines and negative spaces of the art work. Lattanzio paints the wall of your mind with projected light. This illumination highlights the tension boiling under the surface of a media driven dialogue: referencing names like Ferguson, New York, Hong Kong, Syria, and Ukraine. Lattanzio asks the question: When are you going to stand up for personal dignity- rage against the machine-raise your voice, fill your lungs, and kNOw JUSTICE, kNOw PEACE.

light and forgiveness

I like sunflowers. I especially like watching them follow the sun. Van Gogh painted his sunflowers with sun light using paint and brush strokes. I paint Sunflowers #4 with light from an Epson projector- using software and a digital paintbrush.
 
You can say that I am always seeking out the light. Maybe this is akin to the heart/soul of humankind always seeking unity with the light and keeping a connection with the Source/God/Goddess of one’s own understanding.
One thing I came to understand today is that to move forward in life, you have to forgive yourself. To be present you have to let go of the past, and to let go you have to forgive- starting with yourself.
So, these flowers are for me and you- celebrating our forgiveness and turning towards the light.
Enjoy!
