Peter Lodato

Always fascinated by the uncertainty of human perception, and the duplicitous nature of vision, which can be both revealing and deceitful, Lodato creates paintings that delve into this duality. Upon first read they are austere, geometric abstractions. After further observation, however, the paintings begin to vibrate: brushstrokes become evident and the surface reveals that there are numerous layers beneath. The hard edges of his often bi-chromatic works dissipate into sensuous fields of color that seem to push space in and out. Lodato’s reductive, divided compositions are visual confrontations between the planar simplicity of form and the resonance of particular pigments. A disciple of the AbEx color field painter, Barnett Newman, Lodato’s sumptuously colored canvases echo Newman’s concept of using division as a way to merge different areas of the canvas into a sublime whole.

Frank Gruber 
Back to the South 1971

"In late July 1971, we spent several weeks in the South (Italy), “il Mezzogiorno,” while my father did some ethnography and my mother, an artist, sketched. There I was, in a place that was very foreign to me, with a camera, and that’s when I took these photographs. For me, the essential aspect of visual anthropology, and what should distinguish it from journalism, or “street photography,” or travel photography, is direct engagement with the subject. Meaning no subterfuge and no voyeurism. In a public setting, such as a public procession, one can infer consent from the public nature of the ceremony, but ideally the photographer engages with the people being photographed. In my best photographs, the subject looks directly into the camera. The photographer should allow his or her subjects to present themselves as they wish to be presented."
