Ruminating on the ephemerality of things, Arturo Sanchez Jr. captures the crepuscular waning of existence in a series of vignettes. Disturbed is an organized chaos of the artist’s collages and acrylic work, told with a mournful chiaroscuro. The collection of flashbacks and memories fade between layers, and dim at the corners: the fragments of a life spent and approaching its end. Encasing these effects in clear resin, Sanchez stills time and immortalizes the decay of beauty and the delicate beauty of decay, moments before everything goes dark.
This work comes framed and issued with a signed Certificate of Authenticity (CoA).
