Saul Sánchez’s work questions different ideas related to the conceptual values of painting and the process conditions, proper of the different ways of representing images. Color interpretation, the boundaries between the visible and the invisible, and the relationship between the traditional forms and the contemporary practices of pictorial environment, are some of the main topics that structure his work. Through installation projects, paintings and drawings, Saul explores the relationships those art forms have with their context (commercial, institutional and educational).
