100 Word Review: Jonathan Casella "The Palace" at The Pit

Jonthan Casella’s solo show at The Pit, “The Palace” is an intriguing exhibition of paintings where Casella inquiries about the state of images and how they relate to time, memory and emotion. Each canvas is occupied by mid-century like patterns, color, form, images allowing the viewer to chart a narrative course. The title refers to Henry David Thoreau “Walden” where the poet refers to a palatial setting as a site for settling fictions to engage with the real. Casella effectively maps a world where the poetic image leads the viewer to the unexpected. The paintings are engaging and fun.
