Dan Gluibizzi’s paintings on paper of frolicking and canoodling figures are meditations on our image-saturated digital worlds. Images from crowd-sourced sites offer a vibrant tapestry of contemporary hieroglyphics ready for interpretation. Now, more than ever, a cornucopia of raw, human-made material can be gathered for the creation of visual poetry—and all directly at our fingertips.
Like organizing puzzle pieces, Gluibizzi groups together decontextualized drawings of men and women dancing, jumping, stretching and hugging, creating exuberant compositions.
Gluibizzi’s analogue rendering of online content employs line, repetition, and subtle washes to transform the mundane into the charmingly erotic.
A Couple Kisses celebrates the beautiful search for connections as we embrace and face the world.
Dan Gluibizzi lives and works in Portland, Oregon with his wife, daughter and black cat. His work has been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Copenhagen and Berlin.
