from the dark

artist statement

 

Hailing from Portland Oregon, Circle23 exhibits dark beauty to gut-wrenching topics. From body-modification to moody portraiture to digitally manipulated creature composites.

 

Transgressive subject matter can be beautiful in the right lighting.

 

Starting out in 2003 shooting fetish events and bands, from there he immersed himself into the world of dark concept art.

 

He has shown in group shows across the U.S. from Baltimore, Detroit, New York,  Seattle, and Portland. Multiple features in magazines and books.

 

Simply put, Circle23’s images make people talk about uncomfortable subjects and the Beauty that can be found in them.
