Augusto Sandroni Untitled (Circus Holiday) oil on canvas 24" x 18"
Sandroni restores my faith in painting. His unfettered approach to image making
rings with an authenticity and verve that is all too often missing in contemporary
painting and sculpture. He references Arte Povera, the vernacular, and auto didactics
in his current work. I really enjoy his intuitive color selections and rough hewn surfaces
as he paints and repaints the work until it resonates with his particular aesthetic
sensibility. Since he lives in San Diego, I'm assured of a sounding board that I can
connect with on a consistent basis.
