J.A. Caplan is a painter and sculptor. His paintings reflect flights into fantasy; his sculptures are personal expressions of his earlier studies of human anatomy with Joe Greenberg and the repeated influence of Rodin. Caplan loves to resurrect and bring aged wood, scrap ferrous metals, and other castoff materials back to life.
Above the entrance to his studio he has described his mission: "ENTER NOT TO INTERPRET REALITY, BUT TO COMPETE WITH IT."
