Artist Reception: Carlo Fantin
Friday 9/5/14
6:00pm to 9:00pm

Our featured artist for September & October is papercut artist Carlo Fantin.

Artist Statement:

I want people to have a physical relationship with my art that it is not just confined to the distance of their arms. I want people to experience how the image changes as they walk away from it. At a very close look the piece seems to be abstract, when you step back the image comes to life. In the same way people experience others differently at different distances; viewers can perceive the subjects in my art through their own experiences, and wonder and speculate about the meaning behind the piece. The composition in my pieces is inspired by the roman catholic iconographic tradition. I incorporate in my papercuts symbols from today culture and as in catholic iconography, I invest objects or actions with an inner meaning expressing common and current feelings.

Happy Hour drink specials until 7:30pm

DJ TBA
