Domenic Esposito will be showing his new series of artwork entitled Blank Slate, along with select pieces of his signature work addressing the Opioid Crisis, at the socially conscious Box Gallery in West Palm Beach’s “Cultural Corridor.”
The exhibit will be curated by The Box Gallery owner and curator Rolando Chang Barrero.
Esposito’s new series titled “Blank Slate” represents the artist’s reflections upon current times and the era of fear, depression, and loneliness experienced in the “new normal.” Esposito explores the isolation of those living with mental illness and those suffering from substance abuse whose challenges have been exacerbated and laid bare.
All the figures depicted in Blank Slate are hooded; their faces are either totally or partially hidden from view. Many pieces contrast bronze patinas with painted backgrounds illuminating the hooded figures’ hidden, inner world, alluding to the wearer’s identity. Through the combination of two and three-dimensional media, the artworks push the hooded subject into our visceral space creating conflict between the figure’s desire to be hidden and the viewer’s own incompatible impulses to ignore, expose and understand.
The Blank Slate Exhibition will open with a reception on on March 6th and continue through March 29, 2021. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday 11-6 p.m. or by appointment.
