While many artists have a favorite subject to which they often return, Lorenzo Pezzatini has been spent the better part of two decades re-creating the same image in his paintings -- intermingled blue, yellow, and red threads, rendered in acrylics, usually on the walls on public places. While Pezzantini has also made a name for himself as a sculptor, designer, and performance artist, he invariably returns to his thread paintings, and Losing the Thread is a documentary by filmmaker Jonathan Nossiter that examines the artist, his favorite subject, and what he continues to find in it.
