Eduardo Lapetina is the Featured Artist for October at the Focal Point Gallery
Eduardo Lapetina was quoted by one interviewer as an "inspired heir to 20th century abstractionism, whose surfaces are strong, majestic and brilliantly colored.” His work can be found in private collections in the US and Europe.
Lapetina has received numerous awards and accolades. He is a passionate artist, using many layers of color built one over the other. He does not use modeling paste or any fillers, just paint mixed right onto the canvas. He states that there is a physical process where he applies paint in various ways - pouring, splashing, dripping, scratching, and so on - until he gets what he wants. This process results in paintings that are about discovery, demands, and contemplation from the viewer.
Focal Point Gallery is honored to feature this award winning artist. The exhibition begins October 1st through October 31st. Focal Point Gallery is located at 1215 East Franklin St., Chapel Hill, NC 27514. 919-636-4557
