Gonzalo Papantonakis weaves the written word, disparate objects and abstract images together in energetic installations that re‐imagine pictorial surfaces. Papantonakis’ innovative approach to composition and assemblage continues from that of the Neo‐Dadaists, particularly Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg.
