Mignanelli made the trip over to the UK for the exhibition. He painted a mural in the space in addition to hanging a large body of recent works on panel. We Sink Ships Radio has posted an audio interview with the artist along with the proprietors of Recoat.

The dense compositions are gathered personal symbols that collide in unusual ways. The picture plane is further activated by comic styled black line and a day-glo color palette. Initially these reductions seem at odds with the basis of traditional abstraction. The method is the same but the subject matter has jumped from natural concerns to our civilized plastic environment.
