ABOUT THE ARTIST:Contemporary Southern-Gothic Fine Artist, Christopher Daniel Sacco, was born in Birmingham, Alabama. He studied at the Alabama School of Fine Arts and the San Francisco Art Institute in painting and film.
Pushing the artistic norm, Sacco explores what we see from day to day. The ordinary life and the life struggles of our invisible neighbors and communities are depicted with seemingly random drawing and rich textural paint. He is interested in the “ugly”, complicated, often abandoned aspects of society. He is also fascinated by the cognitive function of the brain and mixes all this together in a visual study of the moment. Often the title alone is the only insight the viewer has to what is represented in each work.
FROM THE ARTIST:
“Three dream notions persist in my cognitive display. My first a recollection of a surreal landscape: flying overhead of a car, when I slept. Nostalgia engages me with recollections from college in San Francisco. My day-dreams persist: I should dispose of my phone and bathe in the flooded landscape that this world had left us with.”
