This Saturday, May 25th, Varnish Fine Art in San Francisco will be presenting all new works from Dan Quintana. Zero Instruments will consists of oil paintings and charcoal drawings from the Los Angeles-based artist and will feature his surreal landscapes and fantastical creatures. Drawing influence from Bosch, Quintana’s compositions are rife with leering gremlins and demons meshing with his Mel Ramos-esque girls into works that deserve a second look. Take a look at some more preview images below as well as the artist statement.

He states: “Zero Instruments‚Ķ these (musical) devices will serve as an allegory‚Ķ Our hearts and and minds are a concerto of one. In this case, zero. The essence has and will always remain. Savage.”
