  • About the work

Postiglione applies an austere technique to depict hard-edged geometric patterns and shapes in his canvas paintings Baroque Tango #2 and Tango Interlude #25, which deliver harmonious color schemes distributed evenly between warm and cool hues. His paintings reference late Modernism through post-painterly abstraction and an emphasis on shape, color, and composition. The result of his concentrated efforts is geometric patterns executed in elegant lines that dance across the flat canvas surface.


About the Artists

, United States

The esteemed Chicago painter Corey Postiglione uses semiotic abstraction in his work to portray themes and metaphorical subjects that include labyrinths, mazes, and the ancient symbol of the Ouroboros. Originating in ancient Egyptian iconography, the classical symbol of the Ouroboros depicts a snake in the act of eating its own tail, signifying infinity or the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. A champion of geometric abstraction, Postiglione uses line to depict a labyrinth of chains, circles, and ovid shapes nesting inside one another. The labyrinth in his paintings signifies a rite of passage or the passage from a centered self to a decentered self. The interlocking connectedness and disconnectedness relate back to the entanglement and interconnection of those navigating a global pandemic.
