Diego Sanchez: Recent Paintings

  • Quirk Gallery 207 West Broad Street Richmond, VA, 23220 United States (map)

OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, October 15th, 5-7pm

Join Quirk Gallery for its exhibition in The Pink Gallery featuring the newest work from Richmond artist, Diego Sanchez. In this body of work,  Sanchez plays with the idea of how a viewer is 'reading' or deciphering the visual information presented in his panels,  how colors and patterns manipulate his / her perception. While working on this group of paintings he hope that his whimsical desire to play with the materials or to develop new surfaces comes through in the work.   Sanchez is inspired by Picasso's statement about painting, 'Painting is a blind man's profession. He paints not what he sees, but what he feels, what he tells himself about what he has seen' and, at this point in his life, continues to approach painting as an act of faith that brings him joy.
