“I have been trying very hard to see beauty. I know I have seen it before but it is vague and exists as more of an idea than a reality…”
Do you have a GPS? What about a map? Are they only vague representations of our world, or do they accurately depict our reality? Andrew Sgarlat, one of our very own People’s Biennial artists from the Philadelphia area, tries to pinpoint beauty, whether it exists in reality, or just as symbols and illusions in our imagination.
(By the way, those “folds” are painted in…this painting isn’t really folded.)
