Mexico born, Los Angeles-based painter Luis Sanchez is a beguiling and animated interpreter of the figurative mode who incorporates techniques of the past such as dry pigments and a fresco-like media to his canvases. He works in figurative and abstract paintings, and sculpture, colliding humanity with decaying walls of the urban world in a juxtaposition of color, texture and dimension.
Sanchez’s paintings are grim and sublime, realistic and idealistic. The result is a profound statement of light and dark, life and death, and the role we play in it.
His two-dimensional works are often noted for his masterful use of trompe l’oeil, leaving viewers with the impression that he has used photography, collage or other techniques when he has only used a brush. His works seamlessly combine the old and new, and have an uncanny way of mixing architecture with the human form.
