Haley-Henman Gallery presents Nicholas Troilo: Experiments in Black & White opening reception
Nicholas Troilo confronts the increasing distractions generated by our interactions with digital technology, particularly our vade mecum, the smart phone. The increased connectivity of social relationships, information, political power and other technologies is part of a double edge sword of abuse by gaming, trolling and addictive behaviors. An ardent colorist, he experimented with how a lack of color might increase our attention, in a focused way, or discovering our own meanings in the work. He uses mixed media for textures, gestures and marks, line and space, freedoms and restrictions.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through December 31.
