I am thinking of a general sense on how I perceive the subjects in my paintings. I can only put a stream of experiences to describe the image: the song by Frank Sinatra, a barely remembered poem about Chicago..something about big shoulders, pop culture thoughts like prohibition and gansters, great pizza, baseball, lots of guys that look like me (baseball cap, bearded, slight beer belly) Guinness, el trains, bridges, biting cold etc.. Does this make sense?
paintings, drawings and musings of artist John Sanchez. "I aim to paint the in-between moments" (was Recorded Eyesight)
I guess what I am trying to ask is what do these places mean to you?
I think the two of us are after very similar goals in our work, and it’s nice to know that I’m not alone. Well regardless, congratulations on your recent show and best of luck with everything. Say hello to everyone for me and hopefully I’ll be back in Miami to visit soon.
