Working in numerous materials, London based artist Caio Locke explores space to create otherworldly art works.
Caio explains the work by saying, “Using acrylics and oils, I explore the notion of the city as a physical manifestation of collective human nature and consciousness, as distinct from pre-existing natural forms, but in certain ways echoing them. Avoiding depiction of the human condition in the context of pain, suffering, tragicomedy or dysfunction, the paintings invite the mind of the viewer into consideration of alternative propositions and meditative contemplation. Historical, modern and futuristic references combine to induce a sense of fractal time caught in frozen motion, whilst detailed vignettes draw the eye deeply into the compositions. Time, light, energy, atmosphere and human existence bound within this matrix are constant themes, while the use of multiple perspectives provides depths in which these elements interact.”
