Augusto Sandroni

                   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.
