Brandon Lipchik investigates the male-on-male gaze, exploring sexuality and intimacy with hand painted works in the language of digital-media. Lipchik creates sexually charged scenes which retain an innocent lense, rather similarly to a Rococo wilderness depicting lovers at play.
Lipchik’s paintings draw heavily from digital sketches he creates; replicating their constituent parts to near-exactitude. Intriguingly, these works go beyond what his computer sketches can produce within their program of origin (or the screen they are made on), through the addition of analogue painting (paint). Lipchik’s application of multiple techniques in his painting displays his facility when manipulating physical matter, all the while allowing the poetics of digital language to be informative.
