They Can’t Hurt You: The Art of DANNY INGRASSIA

DANNY INGRASSIA is a digital painter whose horror scenes have a gloriously chilling atmosphere and a texture that jumps off the screen. I especially love his Rennaissance-style portraits; it’s like seeing behind the deification of these kinds of portraits to the zombie obsession that exists underneath. His brush strokes lovingly coax their death to the surface to be celebrated the way we do with life. At the same time, they are shells of the human beings they may have once been. He explains it better:

My works represent entities that wander in various places. We can call them ghosts, but personally I don’t believe in the soul. I think they’re projections of those who were once men. They have no feelings, maybe just a few residual memories. They can take many forms. Some are curious, so they wander, transform, evolve, and above all, observe. Others stay in a place, like a home, where they may be waiting for something that will never come. Their face is expressionless and represents their eternal being. This can be unsettling, but someone told me that looking at them felt like sadness, melancholy. They don’t want to and probably can’t hurt you. They’re just there.
