Peter LODATO

Tibetan Door #2

1999

oil on canvas
96 x 84"

During the 1960’s and 1970’s, Peter Lodato's art consisted of environmental works utilizing space, powerful lights, mirrors, shadows and reflections.  Soon after, Lodato realized he could make a similar statement by replacing the reflected light and shadow images with paint applied directly to the walls in large flat and glossy panels of color and black and white. These works were exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (1972), PS1 in New York City (1978), the Whitney Biennial (1981), and the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art (1985).  More recently, Lodato’s work has consisted of abstract paintings and works on paper that have the same perceptual quality as his early light and space installations. Lodato’s simple compositions are concerned with positive and negative space, and the pitting of shapes against edges and margins. Peter Lodato [b. 1946] lives and works in Los Angeles.
