Exploring Modern Realism Through the Legacy of Caravaggio’s Chiaroscuro

Experience the new masters’ continuum of old masters’ tradition and narrative storytelling in art.”

— Jeremy Caniglia

DENVER, CO, UNITED STATES, January 12, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Abend Gallery takes great pleasure in announcing “A Matter of Light and Death,” an exhibition curated by Jeremy Caniglia. This exhibition, which opens on February 3rd, 2024, is a profound tribute to Caravaggio’s legacy and a spotlight on contemporary artists who draw inspiration from his revolutionary techniques.

Curator’s Statement

“A Matter of Light and Death is a unique exhibition that celebrates the legacy of Caravaggio, featuring contemporary figurative artists who embrace and expand upon his techniques of chiaroscuro and narrative depth. These artists are the next generation of contemporary realists who are unafraid to delve into the realms of darkness and beauty in storytelling.

A new renaissance is emerging for the lost craft of fantastical storytelling using old master techniques. Masterpieces of the greats like DaVinci, Caravaggio, and Rembrandt are reaching new heights at auction houses while being collected by art museums around the world. At the same time, the public and art collectors are looking toward the new generation of masters to collect. These 21st Century masters come from the world’s top academies, ateliers, and kitsch studios. They are carefully attuned to the archetypes of the ancient world, observers of our natural world, and witnesses to the sensitivity of the human condition.

This groundbreaking exhibition is the continuum of the old masters. What if you could purchase a Caravaggio in his time because you knew and understood the power of his timeless narrative storytelling created at the highest level that a master’s technique could reach. Now is your opportunity to see the new masters from around the world emerging while at the same time having a chance to buy a piece of artwork that celebrates tradition, archetypes, sentimentality, and romantic pathos. Experience Artistic Evolution and join us at Abend Gallery to witness how these talented artists continue the tradition of narrative storytelling in art, blending the past, present, and future into each brushstroke.” – Jeremy Caniglia
