Swamp to Swamp: Works by MILAGROS
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 6 (CAC’s Art for Arts’ Sake)
Detail of Works by MILAGROS. Mixed Media.
Swamp to Swamp is a multidimensional painting created by MILAGROS founders, Joey Fillastre and Felici Asteinza. Swamp to Swamp navigates the waters between Florida and Louisiana, elaborating upon what unifies and makes each place unique. Pattern and color are utilized to depict uncontrollable forces at play. The vocabulary of pop converts the natural world into a vibrant narrative. Unlikely characters resonate through an explosive terrain, creating dialogues of regrowth and invasion.
