78°N 16°E: The Arctic Series an exhibition of paintings by Pia De Girolamo at Cerulean Gallery, Philadelphia, Jan 13-Feb 7, 2021
One week in the Svalbard Archipelago above the Arctic Circle in May of 2019 was all it took for this unforgettable environment to insinuate itself into my paintings.  Since that trip, the Arctic landscape and fauna became the subject of a series of paintings. I have been to many rugged isolated locales but visiting the Arctic was like visiting another planet. Not only were there vast expanses of water and masses of ice in varied configurations but the light was unique. It lasted all day, for one. The sun never set but merely dipped to just above the horizon where it shown weakly before it rose up again. I never felt like sleeping. Changing light could transform a landscape from a blazing bright vision to a brooding, moody vista.
The local inhabitants were equally interesting. Polar bears, seals, walruses, pods of beluga whales, arctic terns and more revealed themselves. I felt like an interloper. As much as I was grateful to be taking this trip part of me felt that perhaps I shouldn’t have come. This place of pristine beauty had already been touched by humans, often quite savagely, for centuries; whale species decimated by the hundreds of thousands, failed mining operations, polar explorations by dogsled, plane and dirigible, and most recently, research stations and who knows what other secret installations, their satellite dishes and huts set down upon mountain tops . Climate change already affected the area and produced that first rains ever seen.
I brought a small sketch book and took lots of photos. When I got back to my studio, and reviewed them, the images flowed onto the canvas and panels and they kept on coming.  
Coincidentally, the images of isolated landscapes resonated powerfully with the social distancing we were all doing while in lockdown during the COVID 19 pandemic. Layered upon the formalistic qualities of the painting as a reflection of the landscape and the powerful impressions arising from that immediate experience, was the experience of uncertainty, fear and disconnection produced by the pandemic.
The Anthropocene is fully upon us and we and successive generations will bear its consequences but perhaps we can still make things better for future generations by stopping the headlong rush to destroy the earth. I hope that these paintings are a reminder to others there is beauty and life and treasure at the top of the world that is worth saving. If we save it, we save ourselves. That this  series ended up being shaped by my response to the realities of the pandemic also makes it one record of art created during an unprecedented planet-wide catastrophe.

!Movie Marathon!
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)
“Yesterday it all seemed normal. Today everything seemed the same, but it wasn’t. It was a nightmare. It really became frightening. It was like the whole city had changed overnight.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) is another perfect quarantine rewatch. It really captured for me the paranoia of walking around in the city. When we walk down the street everyone is weary of one another, crossing the street to keep apart, rushing to keep a safe distance and hanging back to not get too close. If you cough outside, prepare for heads to turn and to receive fearful glances. Everyone seems normal (with the exception of the face masks) but we all know, that some people have been infected, and may be dangerous!
This movie rules, it has all the fun practical effects you could hope for, with classic sci-fi performances from Donald Sutherland, Jeff Goldblum, Brooke Adams, Veronica Cartwright and the late great Leonard Nimoy.

I’m looking for Chicago and Philly artists who do art of their respective cities!
Skylines, significant locations, landmarks, etc. I have a couple things in mind and I’m hoping to find prints, but I’m willing to commission things as well!
Please DM me if you fit the bill, know someone who does! Or just drop me a link to their shop.

Happy birthday to Roberto Lugo, who self-identifies as a ghetto potter, activist, culture-maker, rapper, spoken word poet, and educator. He blends his personal experiences of poverty, racism, and being a potter of color with historical ceramic forms, unapologetically inserting his own cultural perspective into a creative arena historically dominated by white makers. In updating ceramic discourse through representing people of color (activists, rappers, poets, politicians) as well as memorializing victims of police brutality and violence, Lugo’s work testifies to the triumphant and tragic lives contributing to history as it unfolds today. See two life-size works by Lugo on view in "New Grit: Art & Philly Now" through August 22.
