Green Kill is pleased to annound that the collage works of Philip Demartino will be on Exhibition at Green Kill from October 1 to 28, 2017.
Philip DeMartino is a self-taught artist. As an elementary school teacher he knows first hand the value of growing through practice, process, and patience. Originally from Brooklyn, and now a Hudson Valley resident, Philip says that as a collage artist he takes from the streets both literally and figuratively. Distilling a street-art sensibility and energy into an image has been his intention. Since the November 2016 election, his work has taken a decidedly more social commentary perspective.
“From where my eyes land, it’s not too difficult to see a sense of chaotic urgency in our eyes and on our faces. I want to make art that sparks people to bring forth a positive energy that we so desperately need.” — Philip DeMartino
