About the Work
Beachin Cliffs is about arrival to a scene. A place we may have been in a dream, and a setting for a party. The painting explores the uniqueness of individuals and how upon arriving to and celebrating in a place we can let that shine. As the characters arrive at the precipice, some look back, some are excited, and some wait. This emotional diversity is key to any party, and in this work that is explored in each figure in the scene. So, arrive with them and overlook the grassy shore, and feel the golden light of the fading afternoon wash over you by the cliffside.
Orlando Saverino-Loeb is a Philadelphia born artist. He is the CEO of Philadelphia Art Handling and has been working as a artist for the past 11 years and for the last 3 of those years has been working as the Technical Director at HOT•BED, an art gallery in Philadelphia. He has a background in Technical Theater, Industrial Design, Construction, and Art. He has worked as a direct assistant for the COO and Director of Appraisals at PALL MALL Art Advisors where he gained experience in the business of the art world as well as seeing and being involved in the appraisal process first hand. He has experience moving high value pieces with care and efficiency. He has his BFA from Tyler School of Art at Temple University, and graduated with the Senior Painting Award.
His own work is influenced by surrealist imagery, the compositions in 19th century Romanticism paintings, and extended stays in Italy. He deconstructs the environments he's experienced, and rebuilds them as reflections on humans and their activities. He uses characters, symbols, and visual metaphors to create a sense of familiarity that facilitates the creation of unique new ideas and insights in the mind of his viewer.
His work has been shown at the Stella Elkins Tyler Gallery, the InLiquid Gallery, Fleisher Art Memorial and the DaVinci Art Alliance among others. In 2018 he was selected to participate in the BecomeBecome residency in Sardinia, Italy, during which he presented in their first symposium talk at the Stazione Dell'Arte - Museo d'arte contemporanea in Ulassai. He has continued to show work as a member of DaVinci Art Alliance, and during 2020 he had six paintings in an international show in Paris with the DF Art Project, as well as showing work with Air Mattress Gallery, NYC virtually. More recently he has shown in NYC with SOLAS Studio.
