THE VAGINA CHAPEL
satellite art show 2017
Five of Petéus's paintings, "Window Paintings", are displayed in the Vagina Chapel. These paintings function as windows surrounding the V-plate, creating a meditative space.
"Window Paintings" was exhibited in a collaborative installation with, Lena Marquise at the Satellite Art Show (7410 Ocean Terrace, 2nd Floor, Booth 207, Miami Beach, FL, satellite-show.com) during Art Basel Miami 2017.
Beginning in 2012, Petéus began painting a series of abstract paintings with 3 to 4 different hues – usually green and black – using enamel paint and clorine. This set of Window Paintings is a continuation of this practice, created especially for the Vagina Chapel. Unlike his figurative work, these paintings are larger in scale and made using a much different technique, utilizing a broom to paint and later flooding the surfaces with chlorine and water. These paintings are working as windows, reflecting the interior as well as the exterior of one's inner truth.
