Spanish Poet, a thought-provoking, abstract sculpture made from stainless steel and enamel, was created by American artist, Peter Reginato. Mr. Reginato’s often whimsical creations are often creatively named — sometimes even for popular candy such as JAWBREAKER, MRS. SEE’S, DOTS, MIKE & IKE, JUICY FRUIT, SMALL DOTS, GOOD N’ PLENTY, and LICORICE. His work has been enjoyed throughout prominent galleries around the country including, Elaine Baker Gallery – New York, NY.
Recent group exhibitions include Five Sculptors at Able Fine Art NY Gallery (Chelsea, NY); It’s All Good!! apocalypse now at Sideshow Gallery (Williamsburg, NY); the Navy Pier Walk (Chicago, IL); Broadfoot & Broadfoot, A Collection of Fine Art – Boonton, NJ; and Works of the Jenny Archive at the Gagosian Gallery in New York, NY.
“The common wisdom in the art world today suggests that in order to make an important statement, an artist must take as much out as possible, thereby creating something that is empty. I want to do the opposite. I want to make art as full as possible. The only thing I took out of my work was realism. I saw greater possibilities in abstraction.”
