Michael Lotenero

“I’m documenting my travels in paint instead of photographs, which lately to me is an interesting way to reflect on where I’ve been and how I remember those places. The pieces are abstract, and I’m into piecing together an experience, with more emotionally based imagery instead of actual, visually accurate documentation.”

Artist Statement

“My current work is based on travel. I’m documenting my travels in paint instead of photographs, which lately to me is an interesting way to reflect on where I’ve been and how I remember those places. The pieces are abstract, and I’m into piecing together an experience, with more emotionally based imagery instead of actual, visually accurate documentation.”
