Santa Barbara Abstract Painter
Tom Post, who was one of Santa Barbara’s most beloved abstract painters, passed away in September 2018. His widow, Patti Post, (married 47 years!) is working with Silo118 to help introduce Tom’s incredible body of work to the world outside Santa Barbara.
After degrees in Structural Architecture from Texas A&M University and a degree in Photography from Brooks Institute of Photography, Santa Barbara, Tom spent 12 years as a full time printmaker (abstract multi-layered serigraph and monotype) and 35 years focused on abstract oil painting.

Silo118 is pleased to present a selection of Salvatore Matteo’s photo sculptures at Synergy One Lending in Montecito, CA. Please stop by at 1250 Coast Village Road, weekdays 9am-5pm.
Starting with a photographic image the artist finds compelling, he cuts portions of it into evocative patterns and lifts them away from the surface, creating a three dimensional piece. The image itself is transformed from a static record of one moment to a layered recollection of time and place - more in sync with the world of dreams and memories than the flat surfaces of a photograph.
