Acrylic on linen, pine and brass brad frame | 2020
For London-based Ethan Caflisch’s newest series, the artist teases a distinction between a film still, a photograph, and a painting while creating something that contains a bit of all three art forms. In dying for a while, Caflisch uses his signature abstract style to slowly reveal the meaning behind the eponymous unrealized film. Containing dark or potentially confrontational themes, the acrylic paintings in the figurative series convey Caflisch’s interest in the transition between seriousness and acting, encouraging the viewer to consider each painted silhouette’s motive as they move across color-block backgrounds.
