Remo Campopiano’s background as a sculptor and experimentalist is evident in his unconventional approach to painting. He begins by allowing acrylic colors to interact over large wooden disks. This process allows color to blend naturally, much like nature forms marble. 

The next layer of paint is applied to 3D-printed animal imagery, based on the ancient Chinese and Inuit art of paper cutting. Once the imagery is matched with the appropriate painted disk, another layer of 3D-printed text is painted and applied. 

This melding of layers creates an iconic foreground over an ephemeral background, all tied together with a lacing of majestic words. The quotes from luminaries like, Epictetus, Lao Tzu, Churchill, Picasso, and Buddha, bring clarity to our times in the face of conflicting perceptions of what is true and what is fake.
