Justin Capalbo’s solo show

Earlier this month, MFA student Justin Capalbo had his solo show up in the Hillwood S.A.L. Gallery.

His enchanting photographs were on display in the gallery from February 3 – 7 and the show was according to the artist himself “the final stepping stone to my thesis show which will be in April.”

For this solo show, Capalbo’s main inspiration was primarily his desire to redefine sacred space.

The show was about searching for sacred space in an overdeveloped world. The earlier work in the show was focused on finding sacred space in suburbia by tracking down places where humanity has left behind. The new series on the main wall was an attempt to find a space that lacked evidence of man. I found that the landscapes I saw were still pockmarked by urbanity.

Justin Capalbo describes himself as a photographer at heart. “I live to explore, learn and observe. A camera is the best tool for this, because your source material is everything you have ever known and will ever see.”

Graduating from LIU Post this May, Justin’s plan is to become a professor. “I love working with students, and being able to instill confidence in young artists to follow the passion and creative minds.”

The MFA thesis art show will be up in the Steinberg Museum of Art in Hillwood, LIU Post, from April 6 – May 8, 2015. Reception is currently scheduled for April 8, 2015.
