Paco Felici’s “Small Ideas” is the collection of ongoing photographic works that will be part of upcoming exhibit at Mockingbird Handprints for SA’s Contemporary Art Month. Paco uses a vintage Polaroid camera to capture images from the past and present. Actor Peter Gonzales Falcon, star of Federico Fellini’s autobiographical movie, Roma (with many other film credits to his name), plays a central role in these works.
“Small ideas is a growing body of visual works informed by original and rediscovered images.
The works are about time: fleeting lives and moments cast against endless space and time’s march
1.) time is infinite
2.) histories about us outlive us; those histories also disappear
3.) nothing/nobody is original; everything has an origin
4.) nothing/nobody gets the last word-
Only time does”
My long time relationship to nature is currently reflected in this collection of Small Works. Drawings/painting reflect the complex yet simple rhythm of trees and foliage and the constructions integrate and naturally evolve out of the gestural paintings. My work goes through growth spurts, it’s seasonal, it’s concepts incubate and then blossom all in alignment with nature. Be it nature or nurture, it all germinates when given the opportunity.
