Antonio Santín Opens February 21
MARC STRAUS is proud to open the third one-person exhibition by Spanish painter Antonio Santín on Sunday, February 21st. Known for his luscious trompe l’oeil paintings of Oriental rugs rendered in oil on canvas, Santín’s investigation into the reciprocal relationship between process and material led to the discovery of new techniques in oil paint application. For this new show, Santín energizes visceral surfaces with a personal approach to layering paint, resulting in new work such as Sisyphus Circus, monumental 13-foot, 10-panel painting with a surface of Cinnabar red carvings typically found on antique Chinese Coromandel lacquer screens.
The exhibition will on view through April 8, 2016. Click here for full information on the exhibition.
