We are delighted to announce the opening of Intitolato, a new group show at Gallery Onetwentyeight. Please join us in exploring the depths our five artists will go to in expressing the experiences that brought them into the world of art. Come Explore the flashing world of dreams of Paola Puppio, follow the intricate caper that gives birth to the photography of Scott Alger, ponder the “Standard Colors” of Domingo De Lucia, Answer the questions of Franciso Osorio, and Continue the dialogue with Bartus Bartolome.
Representing the flashing world of the dreams using different techniques that reflect in a symbolic way imaginary travels, the coexistence with signs and characters generating an interior architecture with universal codes where the language has no limits.
Subjects are positioned by Alger and then, action: the lights flash, twist and turn as he dances around the posing figures, lights in hand. This intricate caper may last up to fifteen minutes depending on the intended size of the piece. It is not until the rolls of film are processed that their contents are revealed

Sitting, walking, praying, with child and without, we question our very being every moment of everyday of our lives. The question is a part of life and for some the question is life.
