ABOUT THIS ART
Back for his 3rd RUN, we welcome Beau Stanton. Stanton's work explores the dynamic between graphic iconography and classicism, juxtaposing apocalyptic imagery with the aesthetic excess of Victorianism in order to synthesize organic and ornamental into a coherent post millennial point of view. He fuses elements of 19th century letterpress printing designs with masterful figurative oil painting, embellishing and manipulating focus, light and perspective. Catching up with Beau we asked him how Semiotics plays into the visual vocabulary of his artwork.
"Semiotics refers to visual symbols and how they are used to convey information. In this image,The History of Semiotics, the majority of the painting is composed of horizontal stratified layers of the Earth, each made of graphic ornaments from various cultures throughout history. Together they form a chronological descent into the past through the drilled cavity of an oil derrick. Using some of my favorite subjects like Pre-Cambrian sea creatures, skulls, cogs and fire, The History of Semiotics is a metaphoric penetration into the prehistoric.
Unearthing ancient narratives from the detritus of industrial decline, where Sirens grapple with sinking ships and Sibyls predict cataclysmic events, Beau Stanton gilds his apocryphal myth with the graphical elements of creation, destruction and rebirth, inviting the viewer inside our collective unconscious ornamented by layers of chipped artifice and the rusted machinations of time." - Beau Stanton
