Price: SOLD USD

Shane Guffogg was born in Los Angeles, California and raised on an exotic bird farm in the San Joaquin Valley. His interest in painting began while a teenager, when he traveled to Europe and the former Soviet Union and was exposed to the Masters. He received his B.F.A. from Cal Arts, and during his studies he interned with Gary Stephan. He relocated to Los Angeles, where he lived in Venice Beach and worked as a Studio Assistant for Ed Ruscha from 1989 until 1995. His work began exploring the iconography of Ancient, Classical, Renaissance, Modern and Contemporary cultures, and the relationships among the various times and peoples. During this exploration he found that painting is one of the few art forms that may express what language cannot. Guffogg views painting as an alchemical act, a search for metaphysical and scientific truth. Unlike Ruscha’s, Guffogg’s works are removed from popular culture and act as an alternative to written language rather than attempting to decode either. He uses multiple layers of transparent medium to create refractive, virtually lucent paintings depicting tangled abstract forms that Guffogg views as having as much to do with human spirit and emotional realities as with quantum theory and the nature of the physical universe.
