|John Cino - Patchogue, New York
Artist's StatementNeried combines a number of influences. Its title is based on sea inhabitants from Greek mythology. The piece is meant to express buoyancy and the interplay between undersea organisms and the fluid environment. The inspiration for Neried came while listening to the improvisational music of the Grateful Dead in which multiple instruments play in and around each other. Finally, the branch of mathematical research known as fractal geometry plays a role in the repetition of curvilinear movements of multiple scales.
|In the past decade, his work has been exhibited on the grounds of Adelphi and Unison Sculpture Park in New Paltz, NY. John has mounted a solo exhibition at Unison and has appeared in a number of exhibitions at the Islip Museum, Gallery North in Setauket and the Omni Gallery in Garden City, Long Island. In 2008 he helped form the Patchogue Arts Council and in 2009 and 2011 he chaired the Patchogue Art Biennial. In developing the Biennial, John created the largest exhibition of its kind in the region, featuring multiple works by as many as 44 artists in various stages of their careers. In 2010 John participated in his first residency at the East Ends Arts Council, Riverhead, NY and the highly competitive New York Foundation for the Arts MARK program. John also received a NYFA SOS grant.
