Marvin Aguilar writes about the work of Nathan Pankratz which was recently on view at Bridgette Mayer Gallery, Philadelphia.

Aguilar writes: "Looking at the titles, the show is undeniably an homage to love and how it reveals itself to people. Yet the show also is a metaphor for the artist’s love of interacting with paint. The way [Pankratz] moves the brush across the canvas; allows the paint to mesh with other colors; and brings the brush to the end so the colors slowly drip over the edge of the canvas is a natural, even sensual, act of an artist’s love of his/her materials that is frequently forgotten but should not be dismissed."
