In his body of work that spans decades, Juvenal Sanso has transformed the genre of landscape into a reflection of the inner state of the artist, a dreamy, otherworldly place where the earth and sky meet, where even the smallest stone is infused with atmosphere.

The best of his stylistic strategies are reflected in his version of the seascape, where formations point to land mass or underwater flora. Swaddled in cerulean blue, the work is at once suggestive of watery depths and surface, through which even light becomes mutable and liquid. This is an iconic Sanso, a painting that readily and generously reveals the spirit of the artist enamored and expanded by the charms of nature.
