Artspace Liberti is proud to present its September-October exhibition, Screen Dreams, a series of paintings by Will DiBello. This exhibition runs from September 6 - October 20, 2013. The reception for Mr. DiBello will be held on Friday, September 6, from 6:00-9:00pm.
Screen Dreams, DiBello's first solo exhibition in Philadelphia, is the culmination of a two year project inspired by his experiences in the hospital with his son in the early months after his birth. The project consists of nine large paintings that are ruminations on the flickering light, color and organizing structures of the electronic screens which DiBello was compelled to observe in the course of his child's treatment and their parallels to the matrixes, points, lines and shapes that comprise the basic elements of painting. The nine pieces fluctuate between grid based structures and irregular, fluid structures creating a phenomena of contrasting static and dynamic energies. These fluctuations are intended to convey to the viewer the highs and lows that are a common part of life in the ICU and to bring to mind the oscillations of electrical forces which sustain living things and technology alike.
