Ajar, new paintings from Joe Ferriso.
February 20 – March 22, 2015
Friday, February 20th from 6-9pm
Park Life gallery presents Ajar, a selection of recent paintings by Joe Ferriso. These modestly sized acrylic and latex paintings on panel unfold color sensitive spaces.
“All these doors leave one’s thoughts ajar. As if in wind or mind. What’s in there? Nothing, insofar as “art has no inside, nothing you can’t see,” to quote Hugh Kenner. But really, what’s in there, in those rooms the doors adjoin. It looks like one invitation after another, each opening into someplace distinct and different. So maybe it’s just that—the pleasure of arriving in a brand new place. Brown and gray studies, simple huts, little neon verandas from Miami or the Mediterranean, ordinary adjacent spaces: the tidiness has an immediate thrill. Their disorders (more charming still) will disarm you at length. ”
