Dusk Til Dawn at Galleri s.e.
November, 2015. Gallerie s.e. is proud to present Dusk Til Dawn, Richard Pasquarelli's second solo exhibition with the gallery. Pasquarelli draws inspiration from the tradition of American Realists, such as Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth, and their use of images of daily life, as well as the ambiguous and somewhat unsettling vision of filmmakers like Alfred Hitchcock and David Lynch. His cinematic compositions capture and freeze moments in time, striking us with a sense of mystery, ambiguity and psychological impact. Using themes, concepts, and day-to-day images that are a reflection of how we live today, from the cinema to TV, music and books, Pasquarelli seeks content that signifies contemporary life. Television and the news media also play an important role in developing some of his subject matter. Pasquarelli keeps a close eye on the trends of pop culture, reality TV, forensic detective shows, and programs focused on the state of the world. (Cont'd)
