    Artist Antonio Petracca has taken up the camera for a pictorial dialogue with his show Mezzogirono that opened last October 16th at Kim Foster Gallery. The title of his show means middle of the day, which exposes the Italian scene in Puglia where everything under the sun is fair game to interpretation. Petracca paints with the camera in such cinematic glory that it doesn’t matter what time of day one thinks his narrative played out. The artist would rather have you formulate questions than figure out the answers in the images of this exhibition. Art has more beautiful resonance when questions heighten the visual cues. In the glaring golden sun that obliterates the absolute, it is profoundly Bellissimo!

    1. The photographs seem very intriguing in small format – I would like to se them larger. Unfortunately, I will not be in NY in the foreseeable future. Is there a site/link to view them. The opening seemed very well attended. Good luck,
      Maria
