• The Battle

      Gorcoff, Jason (2012-04-26)
      I grew up on popular culture: films, video games and comic books. The illustrations for movie posters and game cartridges were often very realistic as were the special effects in the various horror and science fiction films. I was inspired by their realism and dramatic subject matter. This is the visual language from my youth and also the language that I emulate in my work. The themes of my paintings are often personal and the ideas are not all that complicated. I tend to be drawn towards stories of good and evil or human conflict in general. With these images I hope to be able to express a simple dynamic of struggle and longing that exists in life. And above all else I try to create an image of physical beauty for the viewer .
