Phyllis Kind Gallery is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition of Domenico Zindato. On view are 8 large scale works (approximately 38" X 42"), exquisitely detailed patterned images on paper as well as 26 smaller works (approximately 8" X 5").
Pulsating with energy and an eclectic spirituality, Domenico Zindato's paintings on handmade paper achieve the visual equivalent of world music, drawing on Indian miniatures, Australian aboriginal bark painting, prehistoric rock art, and tribal textiles for imagery. Inks and watercolors layered over pastel grounds create a dazzling tour de force of hue and pattern. Dots, teardrops, leaves, lozenges, zigzags, and nets fill every inch. Both this horror vacui ("fear of empty space") and meticulous rendering identify a strong outsider sensibility.
