// Artist's Monograph
This artist’s monograph (both in Print and online eBook formats) accompanies the exhibition PETRONIO BENDITO: Natural Disaster Color at The Art Museum of Greater Lafayette (May 9-September 23, 2014) and covers 12 years of Bendito's post MFA art production. The preface is signed by Kendall Smith II, Executive Director of the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette (AMGL).
Dr. Catherine Dossin, Associate Professor of Art History at Purdue University, examines the Natural Disaster Color series and reflects on its connections with Warhol’s Disaster series. She discusses the impact of the internet on Bendito’s artistic production. Dr. Elizabeth K. Mix, Associate Professor of Art History and Director of the Art Program at Butler University, provides a historical framework for the artist’s production. She examines the works and process with a special emphasis on new media history. Professor Terezinha Fialho, poet, writer and Professor of Art from the Federal University of Paraíba in Brazil, provides personal insights about the Natural Disaster Color series and its emotional impact.
