Alternate Resolution, Hide House, Philip Atilano

  
Painted canvases quietly commanded a foyer wall in what used to be a tannery docking bay, now the entry way of Hide House Building 9.

  
Philip Atilano, stands at a table solo across from the works. There are not many people at the Hide House edition of Bay View Gallery Night, at least not in Building 9 anymore.

  
A muralist and exhibit designer by trade, Atilano admits that painting in this format is a relatively new foray. A metal putty knife scoops and spreads florescent and pastel acyrlic into place. It sticks in angular patches, guided by line. In other works, splashes of contrasting colors highlight and make knowN their abstract intentions.

Munching dramatically, these works keep you looking. Philip Atilano measure his aesthetic with specific gravity.
