Hang Outs... Venice, CA

'Trying to be Neither'

A collection of new works by surrealist painter Scott Belcastro.

Opening Reception:  Saturday, October 20th 7-10pm

On View:  October 20th – November 3rd, 2012

The Art:
'Trying to be Neither' reflects the artist’s most personal work to date. Through an assemblage of original paintings, Belcastro explores the internal struggles one wrestles with on a daily basis as he or she confronts life’s uncertainties. “These paintings are my inner most thoughts and a way of expressing how I’m feeling most of the time,” states Belcastro. “In these paintings, I’ve put myself in various situations where I am at the mercy of something. I am weak, sometimes strong, sometimes nothing at all.”

The Artist:
Scott Belcastro grew up in the immense countryside of upstate New York, and the vast terrain of his childhood is reflected constantly through his ongoing artistic explorations. Belcastro’s paintings are a meticulous study of endless landscapes and skies; a struggle between illustration and abstract expressionism. They tell stories of inner silence, loneliness and the search for something larger within ourselves.
