Paint chips or art


Post by Avery Lawrence

[Editor’s note: This is an additional comment–first post here by Lawrence’s classmate Francisco Cadavid–on Joseph Marioni’s exhibit of color-field paintings at Larry Becker Gallery.

I wondered if I could create the same effect with spray paint on my dorm room wall. It would be impossible, I decided, for each color elicits a hint of emotion and personality not easily achieved using haphazard methods. The eight paintings have a subtle complexity that electrifies the exhibit and elevates the experience to something more than just flipping through paint chips at the Home Depot (image, Marioni’s “Red Painting”).
