The arresting paintings of Daniel Bilodeau blend realism with abstraction and sculptural techniques. A new show at Thinkspace Projects in Culver City, titled “State of the Art,” offers new works by the Canadian-American artist. The show runs through Jan. 26 at the gallery. Bilodeau was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
“Whether playing with an archetype funneled through art history or a portrait of someone close Daniel Bilodeau is thinking about aspects of identity today,” a statement for the show says. “He has been engaged with a series of works which imply certain truths of our time: the modern sense of self formed inside an algorithm funneled cacophony of input and expectation, and the manipulation of content to produce more and more to consider. His paintings, in form and function, speak of the side of us that is learned and calibrated balancing with the side which is direct, automatic, and child-like.”
