On view April 22 through June 24th


Nylen Galley at Picture This is pleased to present a show of paintings by Vincent Calenzo.. Vincent uses exquisite technique to realize his visions of inner stress and anxiety. He explains:


“When I’m struck by a particular scene, passage in a novel, or poignant conversation, images begin to show themselves. In sketches I try to capture these impressions and when a sketch has power I’ll commit to a painting. Human activity is the central concern of my work, especially how people cope with difficult situations. Most of my characters are attempting to find a creative solution to their predicament despite their lack of resources or understanding. Often the result is a contemplation of the archetypal comic hero, the sort of person I've always admired, both in literature and in life. When looking at my work I hope viewers will relate to the images personally and conjure their own tangential narratives, or be encouraged to ask themselves a few big questions.”
