John Sanchez: Take Off

March 11, 2006 - April 1, 2006

Opening reception March 11, 2006, 7 p.m. - 10 p.m.

In his first solo exhibition for Dorsch Gallery, John Sanchez's Take Off features paintings of street scenes, traffic lights, and silent views of airplanes at dusk and dead of night. The images capture fleeting moments, glances, blurred obscured views and the quiet aftermath of a nighttime rain in the city back streets. The works are then painted in quick loose gestures of thin colors and layers, that leave the paintings with an even glow and saturated haze.
