"This painting is a solid bridge to my new work. A female figure is being taken held hostage/possession by an outside entity or quite possibly her own demons. Whether she’s taking pleasure by this situation is unknown. I am obsessed with the idea of the mind creating it’s own worlds of possession and separating the consciousness to the unconsciousness state of mind. I used oil paints on wood panel to create this piece. It will take part as the centerpiece for my upcoming show “Zero Instruments” held in San Francisco at Varnish Fine Art on May 25th." - Dan Quintana
Dan Quintana’s works have evolved as he has evolved as an artist. The graphic in-your-face sensibility from his street art days has moved toward the more ethereal and deeply layered with splashes of painterly abstraction. His Mel Ramos-esque girls now exist in abstracted Boschian landscapes rife with leering gremlins and bold fauna, symbols of humanity’s courage in the face of the ever-present pitfalls and pains of life. The intensity in the eyes of Quintana’s figures makes it known that they are not passively enduring their surroundings. Their will shines through, reflecting both the vulnerability and strength of humanity in the face of a hostile world.
"These (musical) devices will serve as an allegory… Our hearts and minds are a concerto of one. In this case, zero. The essence has and will always remain. Savage." Dan Quintana said of the upcoming exhibition at Vanish Fine Art.
Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, painter Dan Quintana channels a style reminiscent of the late Hieronymus Bosch, but with a modern twist. The tones, brushwork and overall technique of Quintana yield a result which pays homage to the great 13th century master, but it is his subject matter, and re-imagining of today’s “earthly delights” that puts his work in a class all of its own.
This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Dan Quintana and 1xRUN.
