There is a palpable mood at the heart of Canadian perennial Calvin Love’s work. Only once in every blue moon comes an artist that seems so familiar yet out of space. Love arrives an enigma, a crooning, haunted voice. A person who peers into himself to reveal something about the world that might otherwise go unarmed, or perhaps merely felt and never properly articulated. I see Calvin at an intersection in every city on earth, unmasking the hidden wonder, and the past as construed by movies and the archetypes that populate our minds.

Love’s work reflects on the modern journey. Songs for the introverts, songs for lonely and songs to elucidate humanity for the weary denizens of the weary world. He proves that in the form of cartoon darkness there is a reality beyond that which is fully amenable to basic speech, and so must be corralled in blind faith in a palette. He is a rare gift that more than so much of what we're forced to consume offers a vision.
