Antonio Arellanes, Jr. (1957-2008) | 24 Images

Artwork by Antonio Arellanes, Jr., has been described as one of the most unique techniques in the history of painting.

In a biography of the artist written by the late, noted psycist, Dr. Leonard Schlain, Arellanes is described as a visionary who has vreated works that help us, the viewers, grasp the newer concepts concerning space, light and time.

"By mixing images from ancient Native traditions with those that evoke machinery, the artist compresses both the time and space of the human condition and presents in one canvas ideals that undergird both the modern and the archaic. High tech bar-graphs are interspersed in the same works as images of the sun and the moon. Arellanes uses aluminum strips, mylar, oil and acrylic to make visible to the viewer the abstract concept that we are the first society to live in the past, present, and future", says Dr. Schlain.
