'Brighter doom' illustrations by Scott Belcastro

Working with acrylic paints on wood panels, Scott Belcastro creates awe-inspiring explosions of color with multiple layers of detail, encouraging the viewer to reconnect once again with their natural and not so natural surroundings.

“For this show I wanted to capture an imaginary essence or spirit that moves with things , weather it be a gun, an animal, or a building. I like to think everything has an essence. The depiction of guns and animals together have nothing to do with any sort of violence or harm.
