Peau d'Arbe At Sylvester & Co.
Joe Pintauro will be showing a collection of images at Sylvester and Co. in Sag Harbor, called "Peau d'Arbe," the skin of trees, which were photographed in France, Italy, the Hamptons and Key West. At close range, tree bark presents surprising, ready made compositions that make for remarkable, if not beautiful patterns. A cypress tree in the garden of Claude Monet for example, photographed at close range and rotated, appears as a feathery wing, while a tropical "paper tree" resembles an early 20th century painting form of drapery or torn, bloodless flesh. The exhibit is on display until May 30. There will be an opening reception May 9 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
