“Shopping Center Still Life” by Stephen D’Onofrio

“He disassembles the classical composition of a still life, edging toward abstraction,” explains NorthPark’s communication team. “Through his collision and dissection imagery, he offers a critique of the hyper-commodified art object.”

“Archipelagos Series” by Juan Alberto Negroni 

“While working on this series, I was looking at Puerto Rico from a geographical and ideological distance,” Negroni says. NorthPark’s communication’s team says “Some of the collages suggest an abstracted representation of a bird’s eye view of an island, each seeming to float aimlessly atop the ocean’s surface, while others may suggest a removed depiction of Puerto Rico’s native vegetation… Negroni comments on the folkloric, preconceived, often-flawed ideas society maintains toward other countries and cultures.”
