RESONANCE featuring artists Michael Mastermaker, Toby Buonagurio, & Filiberto Perez, curated by John Cino [10/9 – 6/11 2022]Marilena Pateraki
Resonance on view at MoCA LI from September 10 – November 6 taps into what Joseph Campbell calls the mythic imagination. As early as the Paleolithic era, artists have created images of an alternate reality, drawings of birdmen and sculptures of lion-men come to mind. From these roots sprang the ancient gods, creatures of fantasy and later surrealism and science fiction. The artists of Resonance each tap into the mythic imagination in their own way.
Toby Buonagurio is a sculptor of ceramics, whose work takes inspiration from contemporary culture’s interest in robots, superheroes and shape shifters often casting an iron glance to Pop culture. Here pieces are finished with bedazzling surfaces created through multiple firings and applications. Her work has been exhibited in over two dozen solo shows in the US and internationally and has been included in nearly 300 exhibitions. Public commissions included an installation of 35 pieces for the MTA in Times Square – 42 Street subway station (2005-2008) and “Earth, Air, Fire, Water” (2010) at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics at Stony Brook University.
