Santa Rosa, CA
Painter Marc Katano debuts his most recent series of signature abstractions on 9 x 12 foot canvas tarps. A half dozen painted tarps stretch across the gallery walls, punctuating the exhibition space with gestural marks of black acrylic and ink. Exhibited alongside works on handmade Nepalese paper, Katano's paintings are about mark-making and may remind the viewer of the visual language of Japanese kanji, based on Chinese characters. Katano expands his meditative practice of painting by scaling his work beyond the human body.
