  • Catalogue Essay

    This untitled work by Sergio Fermariello employs one of the artist’s most favored figural motifs – the warrior – to create a repetitive field condition. This stark contrast of black and white further emphasizes competing readings of figure against void. Through its density and repetition, the use of the violent warrior becomes almost decorative. When paired with the ‘Poly Spot’ vase, this idea becomes more apparent. The painting becomes a wallpapered surface, against which the vase, in camouflage, nearly disappears.
