“The fact that everybody in the world dreams every night ties all mankind together.” – Jack Kerouac
Editor’s Note: I met Steve Sangapore at an art opening last year when he was showing one of his pieces (Virtuality) below. What struck me about his work was the complexity of ideas being communicated all at once. My eye would focus on one aspect of it, only to be drawn away a moment later to another section, forcing me to visually zoom in while I pondered its significance. The interconnectedness of all these seemingly disparate parts – some instantly recognizable, others more abstract – was one of the reasons I put a check next to his name on my exhibition notepad.
I’d like to mention that two of the pieces – Virtuality and Omneity – are painted on angled canvases which create a 3-dimensional depth that a computer screen cannot capture. If you’re in the northeast and you enjoy Steve’s paintings, look for them at his exhibitions to get the full experience. Here are a few of his upcoming shows:
- Gallery 263 – Member’s Exhibit, Cambridge, MA – Spring, 2016
- Brookline Arts Center – Omneity, Brookline, MA – July 22-August 26, 2016
- Artspace’s City-Wide Open Studios – Goffe Street Armory, New Haven, CT – October 11-12, 2016
