The highly detailed paintings of Valerio Carrubba offer an unexpected combination of styles that strangely complement each other.  His scenery and figures seem to emerge from a Renaissance and Baroque tradition.  Mysterious hands pull and cut at the flesh revealing each subject’s inner anatomy in a nearly cold way very similar to modern anatomy atlases.  The scene as a whole, however, bears the definite influence of surrealism. Carrubba works these various styles and aesthetic sensibilities as skillfully as the oil paint.  The boundaries are seamless and carefully worked.
