18 x 18 inches

Exhibitions:
Color Climate: Matthew Deleget & David E. Peterson
Alejandra von Hartz Gallery, Miami, FL, 2010
September 11 – October 30, 2010

This is a new suite of paintings informed by the “shuffle” feature on my iPod. Each painting consists of a checkered grid of four colors completely selected at random. The gallery walls are also painted various colors selected at random. This specific series of paintings, made of acrylic paint, including fluorescent, metallic, and iridescent colors, on thin archival masonite panels, is directly inspired by the legendary salsa ensemble Fania All Stars. Each painting will pay homage to a specific musician in the group, including Johnny Pacheco, Hector Lavoe, Celia Cruz, Ray Barretto, and Larry Harlow, among others.
