Dacia Gallery proudly presents “Looking In” a Solo Exhibition by Billy Seccombe. By taking a unique approach to oil painting in an academic manner Seccombe’s work captures a classical realism with particular attention to rendering the figure. His latest paintings seek a poetic aesthetic and an ethereal quality, which often depicts a figure with decorative elements, text, and thick impasto paint. By letting the paint flow and careful not to overwork the canvas, he creates bold brush strokes thatconvey a sense of life and energy in his subjects and an intimacy in his models. “My work derives a sense of comfort and of warmth while employing elemental accents such as patterning and props.” A graduate of Syracuse University with a BFA in illustration, Seccombe grew up in Rochester, NY. At a young age he was inspired by Rochester based artist Ramon Santiago, whose theatrical style can at times be seen in Seccombe’s work. “I want to have a dialogue with the audience” says Seccombe of his new work, which invites the viewer in by conveying thought and emotion with a delicate sense of intimacy by Looking In.
