About

Big Little 119 (Striped Abstract Geometric Painting in Tones of Blue & Red) by Vincent Pomilio Colorful abstract painting on panel made with mixed media in tones of Yellow Pink & burgundy acrylic, pigmented plaster, beeswax and marble dust on panel 12 x 12 x 1.2 inches with teal painted sides, ready to hang as is Vincent Pomilio is a master when it comes to color composition. His abstractions on canvas and panel come to life with the most brilliant, yet unexpected color combinations. This painting, entitled Big Little 129, was made with mixed media including colorful pigmented plaster and acrylic paint. Bands of bright color in shades of pink, black, yellow, red, with accents of burgundy are applied in a vertical striped pattern across the panel. The surface is then burnished to reveal exciting colors in the layers underneath. The fragmentation might lead one to believe that it is a collage, but it is actually many layers of built up medium. About the artist: Vincent Pomilio specializes in all painting media, canvas, paper and wooden panel. A visit to his studio in the bustling neighborhood of Manhattan’s Greenwich Village offers a unique insight into the artist’s process of his own art making. The right brain dominates here; skillful use of color, shape, line and scale are discovered via intuition, experimentation and quarter turns of the canvas. Pomilio has occupied this bohemian artist’s pad since his school days ended at New York University in 1978 and it is here that he continues to paint to this day. Abstractions of color explosions are harmoniously composed using a combination of acrylic, wax, pigmented plaster and marble dust to build up surfaces and introduce texture. “In the end, the challenge is to know when to stop,” says Pomilio. The result is a stunningly complex and layered composition of color that one could interpret as an aerial landscape view or motifs that resemble woven baskets. When it comes to abstractions, the artist rationalizes, “If you see it, it is there.” At one point in his career, Pomilio felt he was struggling to successfully produce small paintings using the scaled patterns that was common in his work. This prompted a new series - the Big-Little series – which encompasses a study of big images on a small scale. By introducing a degree of ‘minimalism’ he could explore color relationships while magnifying techniques used on larger canvases. The effect this project had on his work flow was one of renewed energy and confidence. He could complete a painting much quicker than with the larger canvases, allowing him to try various solutions and expel creative energy in a focused way. Earlier this year, he completed the 100th 12 x 12 inch painting in the series. This exhibit will feature #100 (as well as #99 and #98), highlighting other selections from this series in addition to select medium and larger paintings on canvas.
