Porfirio DiDonna

Porfirio DiDonna’s work explores the ritual of mark-making and the physicality of painting, coupled with a psychic resonance. DiDonna’s pointed abstractions are visually disciplined yet delve deeply into his religious sensibility. Objects and place are referenced in a both literal and spiritual sense, seen through images of the road, doors, and chalices, which appear frequently in the works on view. John Baker’s book on the life and work of Porfirio DiDonna, The Shape of Knowing, was published by Pressed Wafer in 2013.
