Peter Paone’s fantastical flowers and vegetal forms are produced with a realist’s precision, but they originate in the artist’s imagination and interact in unsettling ways with characters from Mother Goose and vampire lore. The paintings and drawings in this exhibition are filled with unexpected symbolism. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Paone has exhibited nationally and internationally, but has never before shown these works outside his studio. This visual diary, unlocked for the public for the first time, documents the evolution of Paone’s career from the 1950s through today.
