Overview

A Boy Named: The artwork of Rene Capone by Mr. Rene C Capone

Figure painter René Capone returns with his sophomore book, "A Boy Named". This full color paperback features 85 of Capone's paintings and drawings as well as a collection of photos of the artist taken by several photographers over the years. Forewords are included by arts educator Stephen Honicki and musician Lian Fitz.

The "A Boy Named" painting series featured in this book were created about metaphorically searching for someone after they had suffered a traumatic brain injury. Examining the core of personality with one word, such as "A Boy Named Truth".

It has been said that the characters in René Capone's artwork look as if they are on a deeply personal quest for identity and their place in the world. This is still true ... only now that the characters are more comfortable in their skin, the road is not as treacherous and the destination no longer frightens them.
