Porch Drawing 2

Peter Soriano
2,500 GBP (£)
2010
Mixed Media
Peter Soriano works on relatively large sheets of Japanese paper with a tendency to work from something observed, ideally around him. He tends to be “in” the configuration that is the subject of the work. Soriano is fond of “systems” objects attached to other objects, such as the wiring plan of a room. But very often there are other shapes that play a role in the work. The artist would fold and rework a piece a number of times. Folding seems to concentrate the dialogue that attracts him. Reworking is part of his nature. The finished work normally is the result of this ebb and flow between the heightening and repositioning the relationship between forms. This drawing highlights the configurations of a large porch that Soriano used as a studio in Maine during Summer 2010.

“Drawing is a vehicle I use to locate myself in various spaces—physical, metaphorical, and psychological. I use the paper to show how those spaces intersect, to help clarify and understand them.” — 2012 RELEVANT QUOTES Patterson Sims, an art writer, curator and consultant in New York wrote the following about Soriano: “Tracing a life that borders on the nomadic, Soriano’s drawings document the ever-shifting interiors of his migratory life; they serve as a means to locate himself and express how he perceives and positions himself in his environment.” “Peter Soriano: Interior Drawings,” exhibition catalog for Other Side -> (NUM)BERS
