Art - Paintings - Andrew Saftel

I have always been interested in trying to understand more about the lives, times, inventions and discoveries that have brought us to this moment. The paintings are chronicles: atmospheres of thought, filled with words, images and stories. Like a life lived, these paintings are layers of information - partly obscured, partly revealed. When I begin to work I use historic documents, personal letters, images from many sources (including my own photographs) and found objects. I arrange them on the panels as I search for connections, which will eventually reveal meaning. I want the paintings to tell the story of a search within which many strands of thought, and experience, exist.
