“Louis Fratino deeply intimate paintings, often featuring lovers, family, friends, and the artist himself, present the human figure as a site of vast emotive expression.”*
The artist’s sensual new work—which recalls a mood of Provincetown and Fire Island in the mid-twentieth century—is now on view at Sikkema Jenkins.
Through May 24.
