Paco Pomet's Elegant and Surreal "Beginnings" @ Richard Heller Gallery, Los Angeles
A fresh, or at least another start, a new page, a chance to try new things, or familiar ones but armed with experience, the beginnings are usually seen as an opportunity and therefore a positive predicament.

And this interconnectivity of the beginning being a consequence of an ending, is what prompted Paco Pomet to choose such a momentous title for his 5th solo show with Richard Heller Gallery. Seduced by the idea of approaching this body of work with a vision of commencement instead of closing one, Beginnings is the artist's response to the profound awareness of finitude, limitation, uncertainty, and precariousness in times of the global pandemic.
