Vincent Castiglia Announces "Resurrection" Art Exhibition

New York City native, surrealist, and metal artist Vincent Castiglia recently announced his upcoming solo art exhibition entitled "Resurrection," taking place from October 4th - 31st at Sacred Gallery NYC (located at 424 Broadway 2nd Floor between Canal and Howard, NYC). Vincent handled the artwork for Triptykon's "Eparistera Daimones." The gallery will host an opening reception on October 4th from 8-11pm. "Resurrection" will include collection of Vincent’s paintings, which are created exclusively in his own human blood.

In the privacy of his studio, Vincent practices a kind of modern-day phlebotomy, siphoning the life force which he believes contains his own psychic energy, while giving it an outlet and form. In doing so, he dissolves the barrier between artist and art in a most literal and immediate sense. This retrospective encompasses all of Vincent’s available work from the beginning of his career and aims to examine the congruency of life and death.

Vincent recently took the time to explain his two favorite pieces in the exhibition, “Feeding” and “Stings of the Lash,” which are displayed below.

"Feeding" depicts the archetypal mother of humanity, a fleeting organism which struggles to nurture itself in spite of the self-evident frailties that are innately threaded into its existence - namely sickness and death. Her transience burdens her more deeply to propagate. Yet hope runs through the composition; among the ruins of a physical shell, the background envelops the figures, like a promise, that like the child, they are being held together by something vaster

“Stings of the Lash” marks significant events in my life, people, places and things - the 'stings' of my own 'lashes'. This painting also deals with the unique nature of the human will. There is a “consciousness between impulses”, the space between actions. The figure stands between two neurons attempting to communicate; only the message is diffused in the space between them by this willful phenomenon. Behind him are three dimensions, which the figure penetrates, physically as well as allegorically, the terrestrial, the celestial, and beyond this the collective unconscious.
