At first glance, the works of contemporary painter CJ Tañedo washes over the viewer like a memory or a dream. His use of hazy, soft, and warm hues over his undoubtedly hyperrealistic renderings evoke a sense of familiarity, delineating between the particularity of his subjects and the universality of feelings and emotions. One can say that Tañedo’s works delve into both the aesthetics of memories and our memories of aesthetics. In this piece, Tañedo achieves the same level of relativity often reserved for more abstract and conceptual works by locating a shared experience within the iconography that makes up our subdued yet active subconscious.
