Artist Paco Pomet who lives and works in Grenada, Spain posesses a wonderfully bizarre sense of humor that manifests itself in each of his oil paintings which contain a strange or humorous visual twist. His subverted landscapes and portraits often borrow from sepia-toned photographs that look like historical documents or vintage vacation photos. Pomet opens his second solo show, Scapelands, at Richard Heller Gallery on January 11, 2014.
