Safe From Harm – Short Stories by Lou Pimentel
On Saturday December 11th 2010, Dragatomi will be opening a new show exhibiting Safe From Harm - Short Stories by Lou Pimentel. The opening reception takes place on the 11th from 6PM until 10PM, with the show running until January 2nd 2011.
Through his latest show Lou Pimentel explores the feelings one may have when inhabiting new spaces alone and the feelings of isolation that may be involved. Being isolated is not necessarily a bad thing. When alone we have the opportunity to reflect on life and what we have been through.
These paintings are intended to bring the viewer into them and come up with their own conclusions. How do the protagonists feel about their situations? Are these creatures safe or in harms way?
