Intimately Detailed Portraiture by Caleb John

April 11th, 2016 Posted by Art, Featured, Los Angeles, Paintings, Surrealism No Comment yet

John uses a light touch when he paints, relishing in the negative space that adds glow to a person’s face or brightness to their eyes. His paintings are the equivalent to an afternoon spent lounging in bed, memorizing the way sunlight spills across the neck or the bones that accentuate one’s elbow stick out when bent.

His photographs bend space around otherwise familiar cityscapes and natural formations to create new, innovative vistas. Instead of a straight line of trees, we see two orb shaped canopies encompassed by the sky. Instead of a rocky outcropping, the hand of nature itself appears to be reaching upward.

Most of the people in Riggio’s work have abstracted or replaced heads. The exception is one piece titled, “The Way You Fell In Love With A Girl,” in which all of the subjects’ faces are intact. He includes a male figure in a speedo flying near the top of the frame, but he is perfectly split in two right at the waist. Confusing? Yes. Captivating? Absolutely!

Today, Colgianese’s work emphasizes the appearance of big banks in his digitally altered photographs. Colgianese says that he draws the most enjoyment from altering images because in this step of his creative process the “visual truth” is in his hands. He is able to create something that could never exist otherwise.

The 62 is one of those rare group of artists who truly stretch the public’s view of just what art is or can be. Anarchy, in the strictest sense, is a belief that order need not be a necessity for civilization. This attitude reflects strongly in The 62’s visual and interactive art. The artists involved each bring their own style and experience with them ranging from involvement in community service to new media design, all in the name of artistic anarchy.
