An LGBT figure artist well known over the past 20 years for his whimsical and erotic depictions of young boys searching for love and identity, Capone is reentering the art world this May with his first show in nearly six years—a love-charged, hopeful exhibition celebrating the miracle of his survival after years of surgery and the partner who hasn’t left his side.
The art show, “Morié: Evolution Under Pressure,” will have its opening reception on May 25th in Long Beach, California, at Hellada Gallery, from 6-9 pm. There will be guest artists and a local poet joining Capone to make the event extra special (friends and artists from the LGBT community).
The show is a love letter to someone special in his life. This show breaks new ground, revealing a side of the artist never before seen: someone who has finally found himself, and who has, in fact, found love—against all odds. Though a hopeful divergence from his earlier works of longing and despair, his signature mythic qualities are more vibrant than ever.
What happens when an artist finds true love? Capone shows us his journey from bruised to still breathing, taking us on the wild ride of his imagination.
This is a free event, with the artist in attendance. Artwork will be for sale.
