Canvases that capture the grandeur of subconscious territories. In fact, are there such places? The answer is in the rarefied worlds of Juvenal Sanso.

He recorded places as he recorded other natural phenomena in the way experience revealed them to him, sometimes brushed by a momentary light, at other times enveloped in a bright “shadow”. Here, Sanso, with his artistic and poetic invention, has indeed created a great idyll, strong in its contrasts, melodious in the harmony of its colors. The perfect control of his brushstrokes has achieved all the polish of a poet’s perfect rhyming.
