When you encounter "Artists" of the calibre and humility of this man, you instantly see through his colourful sensual eyes, his memories, his dreams, his soul. Love your work but more importantly love the way you go through life.
The Sediment of Memory
New works by Eduardo Santos
Eduardo Santos works with gravity the way other artists work with oils or ink. Gravity guides the line and pins down his disparate materials of sand, earth, paint and varnish. Each layer accretes like sediment. The dense dry texture of sand and the lumpen rivulets formed by earth mixed with paint generate a haptic experience something like standing inside a river cave or being pinned beneath the glassy swell of a wave.
This is not landscape as scene but nature as elemental drama. These are paintings of tremendous presence and they are visually demanding. It is not quiet work. But the generosity and pent-up energy of every marking serve their own rewards.
