The artist offers a surreal interpretation of the natural world, investigating the powerful tension created by the juxtaposition of vibrant colors and thick impasto. The convergence of realism and abstraction in Caliendo’s work creates a profound and thought-provoking narrative that evokes emotions and leaves a lasting impression. One of the iconic pieces in the exhibition is Untitled (2024), a captivating landscape painting depicting a forest scene. Caliendo skillfully employs a technique often found in his work, using shades of green and red to create a striking color contrast. This vivid representation of nature from Caliendo’s perspective suggests a scene of meditation in the embrace of mother nature.

By presenting Dusk Ritualat its prestigious exhibition space, Gloucester Arts Club provides a unique opportunity for visitors to witness the convergence of artistic brilliance and cultural exchange during Hong Kong Art Month. “The Gloucester Arts Club is a haven for fostering creativity and intellectual discourse, where art is not just a decoration, but an integral part of the members’ experience, ”expressed Kevin Poon, co-founder of Leading Nation Hospitality and the club’s art curator.
