I spent the last 2 weeks on a quest to see the Caravaggio’s of Rome, Naples and Sicily. I took a group of students and the journey was incredible. The paths to grasping the complexity of Caravaggio’s paintings are multiple and variable. Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) chiaroscuro style, is gorgeous and stark with its dramatic angled lighting, deeply shadowed backgrounds and heart-wrenching contorted figures. The Rome and Naples paintings are unmatched in breadth and depth. Caravaggio does what no painter before or since has been able to accomplish. The compositions are so complex but yet appear so simple. The movement of light is in a world of its own and his muted palette against vibrant hues makes flesh tones and drama explode out of the painting. It is as if the painting is alive and the sitters will start talking to you at any moment. The most interesting phase of Caravaggio’s late career was surely the years he spent in Malta and Sicily. In 1608 Caravaggio was on the run escaping from the Maltese jail and took refuge in Syracuse. It was incredible to see these large works and especially the Burial of Saint Lucy. The Sicilian works are unique on so many levels. Caravaggio was near the end and would be dead in two years. The amount of work that he finished in this time is remarkable! As I dug deeper into his work I found a man who was flawed but sincere in his convictions. Caravaggio was grateful and loyal to his friends. He was not only a murderer but also a victim; not only a genius, not only an imperfect man with faults, but also a worthy person who understood the human condition and empathy at the deepest level. He lived a short and violent life but what he gave in return was the reality of this imperfect world we live in.  #caniglia_art #caravaggio #michelangelomerisi #masterpainting #darkart #highkitsch #kitschpainting

The Nerdrum family has made a new film series that is incredible. The film is titled “The Hunt of Odd Nerdrum”. In order to bring the film series to the United States and around the world they are asking for help on funding for final edits and translations. This project in the making is going to be spectacular! I've already seen sections of the film and they are filled with wonderful information for all painters. It has sections on master works from museums around the world as well as classical figurative history that every painter needs to know.  The vision and filmmaking by Bork Nerdrum will blow you away with beauty. If you would like information on the project or would like to donate even a few dollars to the project I have attached the links below. Let's do what we can to help materialize this story of the greatest living Master Painter!

I've got an exhibition at Johan van Heerden art gallery, come say hello on  Saturday. #portrait #kitsch #highkitsch  #saportrait
I decided on Sunday’s I would give a shout out to painters that have influenced and inspired my work.The first painter is Jean André Rixens, and his painting La Gloire (The Glory), from 1883. This piece is at the Musée des Augustins and depicts the painters last breath with broken brush in hand and embraced by an angel. The brushwork has a breath and undertone only a master can achieve. He did not have to paint every detail and it still gives us the feeling of heavy isolation and sentimentality. #kitschart #highkitsch #kitschpainting #jeanandrerixens #darkart #imaginativerealism #caniglia_art #dystopianart #masterpainting #traditionalrealism
Another study for my upcoming exhibitions. This piece is titled "Elysium". Red Sanguine chalk on paper.
