Colette Calascione was born in San Francisco in 1971 and received her B.F.A. from the San Francisco Art Institute. She resides in California.
Inspired by books and images of earlier eras, particularly the Victorian era, Calascione invents a world that is her own. Images of women and children in old photographs are transformed in the artist’s hands. She never literally copies a photo or its background. When she sees a figure she likes, her vision forms around it. Clothed figures in photographs are sometimes undressed by Calascione in her paintings, and placed in a mise-en-scene she creates. Rarely does the environment surrounding the figure come directly from a book or photo, as a “quote.”
Addressing the issue of gender identity and particularly that of “female identity,” Calascione’s imagination takes her into flights of fancy and fantasy in her paintings. She paints women in all guises, mostly unclothed, sitting on divans brocaded in satin, standing provocatively looking at the viewer, reclining on a bed surrounded by the stuff of dream and fantasy, purring cats, fairy tale fish, toy soldiers
Her painting, “Traveling Hermit,” gives the appearance of a masterwork, a classic posed “portrait” of an elegant woman of stature, dressed in velvet and lace, with exotic hat. The imagined hat, like attenuated wings, focuses the viewer’s attention on the lady’s eyes—are they there, or are they not? Calascione always evokes in the viewed a multitude of questions: this painting has the “seer” being seen, by eyes that take us to the great beyond.
Painted like Old Master paintings in many layers of oil, the artist beguiles us with her images and her imagination.
DarkClassical is a home and vessel for ongoing work in creating and producing analog and digital media art that crosses and mixes the areas of sight, sound and electronics.
The Good Fight
The Good Fight
Thank you for visiting thegoodfight.ca . I created this site to share some personal art and projects I've made and the little mission that they've become a part of.
Art has always been a large part of my life, it's in my blood. And to say that I love it would be an understatement. Over the last few years, I've been making time outside of work to do more art and savor it namely through taking photos and painting. It's done a world of good for me, so I'd like to do something good for the world in return. With the times I am commissioned to do work, I've decided to put the profit I receive from each project, towards something good at the end of each year, with the hope of building something sustainable in the future.
Something good? I believe that behind every good cause and every human being there should be an understanding ear and someone fighting for them. I believe all it takes to make a lasting impact on that cause or person is that little extra time, strength, compassion, or tangible donation. Where there's a will there's a way right? I'd like to encourage others to do the same if they feel that pull. I am all for one's pursuits acting on what moves their heart and engages the human spirit. Remember what you're fighting for, and fight the good fight! Change someone's life for the better - it goes a long way. You've got this!
