> DESCRIPTION

The ICI presents a visual exploration of contemporary society presented through the paintings of self-taught artist Sande Sisneros. Using light-sensitive paints and inverted lighting and optics within the display space, large-scale oil paintings of uninhabited landscapes and disjointedly dramatic skies give way to a tracery of haunting visual narratives that reveal hidden “realities” lurking just below the painted surfaces. The duality of these images encourages viewers to question what we see and (more importantly) what we often times don’t see or choose not to see. Is seeing really believing? Are truth and perception the same? And equally, what are the boundaries of our existence?
