The 1980s

May 5 – June 5

​Created in the 1980s and 1990s, Merlino’s works are populated by a graphic, painterly and sculptural detritus. Mountains, containers, maps, tables, fish, leopards, hummingbirds, sea creatures, submarines, volcanoes, and fighter planes litter his canvases. These paintings incorporate mixed media and collage with striking paint and present a saturated and incisive tableau.
