  Love You....Till the End of Time

Speciale,Phillip-Chicago Style
Chicago Style / Mixed Media / 6 / 27.00 USD

Description: Print, Unframed, Signed, Open Editions The Artists hometown is depicted in this roaring-twenties type shadow box. It signifies a generation of class that no longer exists. It was a time when people dressed up when they went to the theater or danced the night away. A time when gangsters ruled the city streets and prohibition affected the lives of millions throughout the country. The Artist displays the iconic Chicago Theater sign dangling above a modern silhouette the city. While the piano plays love songs for all the people of the night. Nothing says Chicago more than a 1926 Rolls Royce, a tommy gun and a trumpet to represent a city in turmoil and enchantment. The bullet holes that are displayed throughout the piece sums up the Artists rendition of that period in time. The digital version of this piece brings out the music of the city while the tommy gun just represents another instrument. "I saw a man that dance with his wife in Chicago my hometown".

Phillip Speciale

Phillip J. Speciale (1959, Chicago, United States) is a self taught artist who works in a variety of media. Speciale tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way and likes to involve the viewer in a way that is sometimes challenging. His artworks sometimes directly respond to the surrounding environment and uses everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. With a conceptual approach, he tries to creates intense personal moments luring the viewer round and round in a world of imagination. Speciale's works are presented with the aim not to provide an idealistic view but to identify where light and the environment are important. The energy of a place and its emotional and spiritual vibrations are always important. By replaying the work for each viewing and pushing the evocative power of the work a little further, he tries to focus on the activity of presenting. The character, shape or content of the presented artwork is secondary. The essential things are the momentary and the intention of presenting. His works do reference a recognizable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that the meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted.
