"Working within a serialized approach takes discipline. This formal approach automatically offers beginning and ending points, so finding new terrain in between is the struggle. However, only by removing certain variables do new opportunities arise. It is an unusual paradox.⁠

For a few years I have created a square shape sent upon the surface in a way that it is both a surface compositional element as well as a form which bends back into the physical structure of the work. I have visited this basic composition in many different pieces and yet the results have been very unique. I find this exploration endlessly fascinating and will continue to pursue this serialized method of working.⁠

A quick note regarding the composition. A seemingly simple square belies the conceptual magnitude which the work can represent. Kazimir Malevich (1878-1935) referred to his Black Square, 1913, composition as the “zero point of painting" which he described at the time as "I transformed myself in the zero of form and emerged from nothing to creation.” So, from this simplest of visions comes the complexity of human experience. Black Square, 1913, asserted itself as an iconic piece of art. It was mounted high on the wall in a corner of a room, a sacred place usually reserved for artistic representations of orthodox saints in Russian homes. Malevich wanted to promote his “zero point of painting” as a religious experience transcending all art forms that had come before. These pieces of mine are an indirect commentary of this aspect of Malevich's seminal work in Suprematism.⁠"⁠

Historic Target House Building T828, located in Rodeo Valley, was part of a United States Army shooting range used for training in the 60’s. This photograph is from a series of over a hundred images that I started while I was an affiliate artist at Headlands from 2015 to 2017. What began as a simple daily ritual, turned into a visual meditation on relationship, time, change, and ultimately, loss. The first photograph in the series captured the Target House and a mature Cypress tree behind it. That scene was altered by two unforeseen events. On August 26, 2016, the Park Service cut down the Cypress in order to expand the grassland habitat for the endangered Mission Blue Butterfly. In this subsequent image, the blue polygon represents where the Cypress once stood. On October 30, 2018, the building was the victim of suspected arson. Nothing remains but a pile of wood and ashes.⁠

“Snow Fall” Series⁠

These pieces really bring in mood this autumn going into winter. We’ve had the first snow in the mountains and getting ready for the season. This will be the last pieces on yupo paper framed like this for a while. I’m working on some canvases of different sizes.⁠

Emilio Lobato’s upcoming solo Lessons Learned includes a variety of materials from rubber to porcelain and assemblages created from antique printing blocks. ⁠

"I began collecting antique printing blocks years ago out of curiosity when I found them in antique stores. About two years ago I came across a dozen or so that were blank, (sanded flat?) and my curiosity intensified. These blocks were used by newspaper publishers (and other printing establishments) when typesetting was used to mass produce newspapers. Pictures and illustrations of goods or scenes often accompanied this printed information.⁠

I was inspired to assemble groups of these to make three dimensional wall pieces accented with found metal and rubber fragments.⁠

Mass produced and thus readily available information was certainly a game changer for developing nations. These relics left from once vital dissemination of news and information are proof that a photo really is worth a thousand words. These blocks, illustrate facts and knowledge that are now conveyed in other technologies that we continue to consume voraciously.⁠"⁠
