Caleb Brown (b.1981, USA) - Shark Drop. Oil on Canvas (2009-2010)
New York based artist Caleb Brown was born in Washington State where he was raised and started drawing and painting at a very young age. His paintings are cultural allegories that aim to reflect his view of the modern world. He combines themes and elements of contemporary life (such as media culture, genetic engineering, globalization, etc.) and expands into completely ridiculous scenes that depict a fictitious near-future or alternate reality. Brown’s hope is that by employing this editorial and often satirical method of expression, rather than using a more journalistic approach, he might communicate his observations and feelings about our modern existence more aptly than by painting actual images of contemporary life. Great thanks to the artist for sending this over.
[more Caleb Brown]
“The world seems to me increasingly incomprehensible, and there are times when I feel there isn’t anything that I know for certain. For me, making photographs (or painting, or whatever) is necessary to translate the unintelligible reality of being into a more coherent form. Or at least to illustrate my best guesses. There is vastly more nothing in the universe than something, and I try to create images that recognize the grace by which anything at all exists.”
