August 2021 Virtual Art Exhibit
Works by Kurt Capalbo
Kurt Capalbo is a visual artist based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His work revolves around harnessing the natural entropy of materials to express the universal degradation surrounding us. This allows his art to take on a regenerative design, creating new opportunities for systems to exist. Works transcend a single medium using recycled materials such as glass, metals, plastics and wax alongside conventional acrylics, oils, markers and pencils.
Daily explorations through urban and natural environments provide the menagerie of raw materials, otherwise treated as waste, as inspiration for his fragmented visual motifs. He refers to his work as socially responsible and innately durable by striving to bring beauty from byproducts. Akin to the randomness of particles colliding, he meshes an artistic stew of organic evolution, enabling his work to take on a life of its own.
The human race will be gone well before his art has reached its denouement. This organized decomposition is the true chronicle of Kurt’s experiences through art.
