Gallery Neptune welcomes John Aquilino back for his third solo exhibition featuring brand new urban landscapes. With a masterful eye for color and composition, Aquilino continues his documentation of cities along the eastern seaboard. The new collection features two paintings of Ocean City, Maryland using pastel, sun drenched views of our neighboring beach town. The pastel palette also appears in new work of Baltimore with perspectives that add more intimacy through closer views of windows and rooftops. The sky is barely mentioned – instead Aquilino forces our view to the building blocks that make up the urban quilt. A vertical maze of walls and angles that start and stop through shadow and light – this is the underlying rhythm of beauty which John Aquilino will once again share in Gallery Neptune’s own urban and alluring environment.
