Jonathan Santoro: In Praise of FollyBy Mark Thomas Gibson
Acid yellow light creates an amber hue that glows from a large exterior window at PEEP. Inside, tire tracks mark the floor. The smell of rubber, buzzing noiseseemingly coming from the overhead fluorescent lightsand scattered tires transform the gallery into an all-night garage. The all-night garage typically looms in the distance, the only beacon of light in an otherwise dark Northern Philadelphia landscape. In Jonathan Santoros garage there is a sense that something is being dismantled, rather than being repaired.
