KARL PILATO'S artwork is rooted in gesture and abstract approaches to landscape.

The intuitively drawn mark is the foundation of his process. Each mark's particular character leads to other gestures, which reflect, contrast, obscure, or enhance it.

Pilato's work comes out of basic tactile experiences of the medium like varying pressure to carve a line through space or bumping a loaded brush over another color to form a flickering complexity.
