Cam Rackam - Featured artist -January 2018 December 18 2017
Cam Rackam is best known for the album art he creates for the band Avenged Sevenfold. However, this is only a glimpse into the catalogue of works he has built as a fine artist.
While his subject matter often rides the line between high renaissance and the macabre, his process reveals inspiration from masters such as Caravaggio, Degas, Bernini and Dali. His repertoire does not end with his oil paintings, as Cam is also an accomplished sculptor. In addition to stand alone sculptures, his craftsmanship can be seen as an accompaniment to each of his paintings. Each frame is individually designed and hand sculpted to complement the respective work.
The art of Cam Rackam will be on display at Afterlife Gallery in NY beginning January 20th, 2018.
Matthew Bober - Afterlife Gallery - January 2018 December 18 2017
I think about my still life's as if they are theatre or religious pieces. I've always been fascinated by the history of art as well as the strangeness of the natural world and try to combine that in my paintings. When I design a painting it's always conceived first in my mind. The colors, the textures and objets d'art are all actors cast to tell a visual story. I like using the same objects weaving in and out of paintings creating a personal iconography and giving them a world to exist in. Nothing I paint would ever just happen to be come upon. I don't paint nature, I reimagine it.
