Sandro Chia: On the Road

Image coming soon.

An essay by Elaine Smollin on the recent work of Sandro Chia, currently on view at Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects, New York through May 25, 2014.

Smollin writes: "Chia has been acutely aware of the mythical conditions that imbue modern existence while associated with the Transavanguardia movement and as a singular actor in the perpetuation of the painted image… Can playful figurative paintings be political? They certainly carry societal histories… The purposeful naiveté in the execution of these works evoke a spontaneity we can trace to the fundamental experience of cinema. Each of these small painted works operates as a continuum, not unlike our participation in the one-frame experience of film that incrementally connects our subliminal awareness to an unfolding eternal narrative. We the author create the needed trajectory of Chia’s figures to a broad folly of becoming that is irresistible to the wanderer."
