Caniglia exhibition at Last Rites Gallery

I will be part of the upcoming 13th Hour exhibition at Last Rites Gallery in NYC. The opening reception will be Saturday October 28th at 7pm. I will be attending the event so please come out and say hi.

Last Rites has become a premiere gallery for contemporary surrealism and a haven for artists who are not afraid of exploring and dissecting every aspect of the human condition to investigate the invisible, the unintelligible and the inexplicable with a focus on the most recondite twists and turns of reality.

The gallery strives to display a showcase of thought-provoking art imbued with references to the dreamlike landscapes and ambiguous feelings originated from an intimate, philosophical contemplation of the self. The gallery program is mainly focused on figurative paintings and sculptures featured by an unconventional interpretation of the human existence that seems to escape any definition of what is real, unreal or unknown.

Last Rites Gallery is located at 325 W 38th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues, New York, NY.
Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 1pm to 9pm
For more information, please email or call: 212.560.0666.

Thank You,

Caniglia Creates Artwork for Anne Rice and William Peter Blatty

Two new limited edition books have just been released with paintings created by Caniglia. His oil painting “The night caws and the nightmare sings" was created for Anne Rice's “Interview with a Vampire” which was released for her limited anniversary edition. The new special release by Cemetery Dance SOLD OUT in one day!

The London based publisher ‘The Folio Society’ just announced the new limited edition release of “The Exorcist” by William Peter Blatty with all new artwork by Jeremy Caniglia. Few novels have shocked the world like The Exorcist. Inspired by the real-life exorcism of a child in the 1940s, William Peter Blatty's gripping tale of a young girl thought possessed, and the small group of determined individuals who race against time to save her, is as iconic as it is horrifying. Yet beneath the notoriety of the novel, and the gruesome scenes stamped into the public consciousness by William Friedkin's 1973 film adaptation, lies a satisfyingly complex exploration of Catholic notions of suffering, guilt and redemption. With illustrations from acclaimed artist Jeremy Caniglia, this Folio edition is a fitting tribute to an unforgettable work of psychological horror.

William Peter Blatty died on January 17, 2017 and in this special edition Blatty includes all the text, amendments and additions that he considered lacking in his original, including a new character now thought by the author to be 'the most hauntingly chilling in the book'.

Here is a link if you would like more information on this special edition that Caniglia created with Blatty.

Caniglia Drawing at The Nerdrum School

Every evening students at The Nerdrum School draw and paint with the master Odd Nerdrum. Drawing from life is essential and using the Apelles Palette is part of the tradition of painters from the Greeks to the present. Here are a few pictures taken by Bork Nerdrum showing Caniglia and other students during the life drawing sessions.
