Voyeur's voyeur Dan Gluibizzi trolls the thousands of erotic sites that serve as archives for couples, strangers, nudists, swingers, amateurs, exhibitionists and other patrons of provocative recreation. The Portland-based artist, obsessed with the Tumblr format of imaging vaults, has a unique approach to the digital and analog world which allows him to investigate and recontextualize a swath of NSFW material and revel in the new exhibitionism enabled by the information age. His paintings present a fetishized framework of playful and experimental sexuality, coupled with his own appreciation for art history and background in printmaking.

If you post a nude selfie on the Internet, Dan Gluibizzi might find it and turn it into art. Commenting on the endless abyss of images we consume, along with the ubiquitous nature of selfies, he explores amateur adult sites and nudist blogs for the perfect image for his collages, which he uses as source material to create quietly powerful, anonymous figurative watercolors.

'Every year we each look at billions of images, filtered, processed, altered. We live in a mediated picture world. Experience, capture, post. I love searching the Internet for "perfect images' those that have a possibility of transcending their time and place. My recent works are collections of nudes culled from a wide range of websites - although most come from nudist and amateur adult sites. Tumblr sites are my favs.' Dan Gluibizzi
