Patterned Space Paintings by Diane Lorio, September 2-30

Su Knoll Horty, Color Pops 7Patterned Space , an exhibition of paintings by Diane Lorio, will be on view in the Mezzanine Gallery from September 2-30, with an opening reception on Friday, September 9 from 5-7 p.m. to coincide with the Wilmington Art Loop.

Lorio received a 2016 Individual Artist Fellowship in Painting. This show explores the artist’s role of questioning the many philosophical and moral issues with the art object.  Various printmaking techniques and sound are utilized in this recent body of work.

Her recent work reinterprets patterns in organic, social, economic, and mathematical contexts. She sees patterning in a larger sense: in biological formats such as DNA, in mathematical systems that describe the world, and in the patterns of our choices.
