Julian Cargnello's practice centers on the exploration of the interplay between technology, perception, and our internal emotional understandings of these realms. His paintings often depict ambiguous and recognizable forms that are hidden within complex, abstract compositions. He aims to create visual stimuli that provoke creative engagement, allowing viewers to construct their own images from the abstracted elements within his paintings.
As an intermedia artist, the other side of his practice is occupied with motion design and video art. This facet of his work challenges the division between fine art and entertainment by investigating themes in popular culture and mainstream media. Using a queer sensibility, his work aims to humorously reconstruct these narratives with an aesthetic that is pertinent to a millennial narrative.
