Local Surrealist painter Beau Stanton has been an up-and-comer on the New York art scene for a few years now, gaining notoriety through his participation in various group shows on the way to achieving his first New York solo exhibit, up now at Bold Hype Gallery in Chelsea. Beau’s latest collection of paintings, presented under the name Archaic Ornaments, combines classical oil painting with his intricate silk-screened patterns “inspired by pre-modern architecture, letterpress printing designs and decayed infrastructure.” The details of the silk screens come into play especially on Stanton’s layered paintings, such as the series of skull images seen in the photo above, and they really need to be seen up close to be fully appreciated.

Archaic Ornaments Visceral Perception

Visceral Perception, seen above, is my favorite of the many skull images in the show, and I especially liked Stanton’s use of  “Flower Power” colors and the painting’s overall vibrancy. One of the cool things about Beau Stanton, besides his visionary artwork, is the fact that he is such a passionate fan of art in general and he’s enthusiastic in his support of the work of other artists. I see him out all the time at Gallery openings and he is always friendly and has an insight to share on what others are doing. Beau Stanton is an artist to watch, for sure. Make a point to see Archaic Ornaments while you can.
