$600

The Animal Series paintings are striking images of animals on wood panels brought to life in white spray paint, white latex paint, black gesso, and black metallic paint. Sanchez, “I start with a digitally altered photo. I use a projector to trace the image onto the wood panel. I apply the paint using the line drawing as a guide to the light and dark areas.” The paintings were inspired by his compassion for animals and his desire to raise awareness for animals in need in the New Rochelle community.  Sanchez, “I became aware of the plight of stray cats and dogs after adopting a cat from the New Rochelle Humane Society two years ago. The look in their eyes can express many things, the greatest of these emotions are trust, love, trepidation, and curiosity.”  The artwork will be on display and available for purchase through January 4th, 2014.

“I paint and draw from my imagination and I love the struggle it takes to finish a picture… For me, starting on a new painting requires a leap of faith. Often times the struggle with one painting leads me into a purer and more essential result in the next. Through abstraction and leaving out specific descriptive information, a more universal expression is achieved; one that exists most importantly on an emotional level. Each painting is a journey into the process of self-exploration and the pursuit of self-knowledge. My goal is to create an art of deep feeling and empathy for the world. I hope that my work will be appreciated and valued for its import and invention.”- Jesse Sanchez
