I like the roughness and worry in these paintings by lisa sanditz. To clarify I mean the way that they are painted rather than their intent. Paint pushed around, layered on top, raw and unfinessed. I love the tension of that technique juxtaposed with the almost delicate and pretty subject matter, chandeliers, fields of flowers, interior spaces. "What's going on here?", I find myself wondering, which is always a great feeling. Curiosity, a bit of confusion and skilled technique always add up to art I want to know more about. And these terrific examples are certainly no exception.
