Photos: Isaac Pierro's "I Killed Qupid" at DistinctionJuxtapoz // Monday, 30 Jun 2008
Isaac Pierro’s I Killed Qupid recently opened at Distinction Gallery in Southern California, featuring a collection of new paintings all based on the theme of dysfunctional love. Can’t we all relate to that?
“The inspiration for my first I Killed Qupid painting came from my frustration and hate for love in my late teens and early twenties,” states Pierro. From a look at his newest paintings, Pierro has been able to channel those frustrations into some pretty amazing work.
I Killed Qupid will remain on view at Distinction Gallery thru July 11th.
