Bratsa Bonifacho, "Babylonia Two," nd
acrylic on canvas, 82" x 77"
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 15, 2-4PM, artist in attendance
BRATSA BONIFACHO's interest in communication and cultural identity is the foundation for his latest exhibition, Return to Babylonia. A fascination with Akkadian, the ancient language of a Babylonia, led the artist to explore the triangle and line motifs of the alphabet. A breaking-up and bursting of the iconic grid patterning and Roman alphabet of the artist's seminal "Habitat Pixel" series, Bonifacho's latest paintings deconstruct and splay the recognizable shape of letters, numbers and symbols into blooms of cacophonous colour.
