DESCRIPTION

A nod to the past-
Gary Jacketti and Linus Coraggio create works that are at once ancient and contemporary.


Jacketti's process of image making takes its form using present technologies and reverses into historical content

Coraggio fast-forwards from neglected post use materials to the promise of reinvention.

 

Gary Jacketti's
mosaic portraits and Japanese paintings bridge the gap between ancient and postmodern media. Jacketti has created portraits and landscapes that evoke the mystery of being - transcending place and time. His new body of work breathes new life into and puts a very modern twist on Japanese art of the 18th and 19th centuries.

A progenitor of the Beacon Art scene, Jacketti's work consistently finds new ways to reinterpret classical themes. Never pedantic, always visually unique, his work has wit and grace.

 

Linus Coraggio's

language for expressing ideas springs mainly from manipulating found and repurposed materials in a very discerning process of choice. Coraggio uses materials and metal junk that intrigues and has a soul or a kind of quirky historical continuum. When making sculptural objects, Coraggio is guided internally and innately by a subconscious flowing set of compositional, proportional, structural and personal laws, which he sometimes break to encourage wild tangents of directional and dynamic evolution.
