STATEMENT - VINCENT POMILIO
I primarily work in all painting media, on canvas, paper,
or wooden panel. For the past ten years my work has been largely
abstract, always using the Natural World as my guide. the
image evolves through a series of layers, each one rubbed,
sanded, or burnished with tools. The image then reveals itself
and I intuitively know when to bring it to completion. Some
of my work has a strong landscape feeling as in "Between The
River and The Sky". I always encourage the viewer to find
recognizable shapes and images in my work. "If you see it'
it is there". Most of these paintings have an all-over feeling
as if these self-organizing systems contimue off the picture
plane. One shape flows from another, and then another, until
there is a pulsating energy of interacting elements. Worlds
of refined, chaotic, movement, animated by color.
