This Saturday, September 18th, from 6pm till midnight, Art Whino Gallery presents Richard Salicido’s Solo Exhibition ‘Beautiful Failures’.
Richard Salcido’s work encompasses the process of exhibition development by creating an ‘exhibition-worthy’ piece under a daily time constraint from inception to completion, and embracing the idiosyncratic qualities that unfinished pieces may include. He states that “on certain days some things come together and on other days everything seems to fall apart,” but accepts each as it comes.
He rejoices both in success and in failure, and finding a balance between what an artist is expected to put into creating a final piece, and what actually results. Though he often wonders why he paints everyday given he is often left with disappointment, he believes that “there is a beauty in it, because there is a beauty in failing.”
Drawing from an early influence in comic books and graffiti, his work features figurative, still life, and typographic elements juxtaposed with mixed media, and deconstructionist appeal, which highlights the various layers of the compositional process that he strives to exemplify within this series.
Sketching Session with live model 6-8pm and Musical Performance starts at 8pm.
Complimentary Special Show Cocktail brought to you by Mie N Yu Restaurant.
