Ventana marks a bold departure from Peter D. Gerakaris' maximalist mode of the last decade. The interdisciplinary artist distills both imagery and content to an essence, while leaving ample space for the viewer’s imagination. The series premiere of Ventana (meaning “window” in Spanish) excavates elements from art, architecture and landscape while honoring the void. Ventana’s motifs are presented as mixed-media works rooted in painting.
