Guest Curated by KATHERINE MURDOCK
Vision Quest Study #3, 2016, 14 x 11″, metal and glass beads, rhinestones and oil paint on canvas (detail)
Mystic Geometry – Circling the Square is an immersive site-specific installation that centers itself around an octagonal floor mandala and sculpture situated at the center of the square gallery. The walls of the gallery are composed of seven large-scale paintings that feature geometric forms creating a panoramic sanctuary for the viewer. The geometric forms found in Lanfranco’s work represent the elements of life and mystical concepts. This exhibition provides a reprieve from everyday life and offers an inviting and encompassing aesthetic experience that explores the symbolic characteristics and allegorical narratives that Platonic solids and geometric forms that exist in naturally occurring forms and that have been referenced throughout art history, spirituality, and philosophy.
