"With a magpie sensibility, these latest works on paper continue an exploration of found local materials. old ephemera, maps, vintage hand written notes, fabric, are used as if they were tubes of paint along with India Ink, gouache and watercolors and pencils. They are usually made in one or two sittings. I try to enter each work with no preconceived notions, but instead treat each piece as a conversation or a meditation. In the end, I hope to surprise myself and when I do, I feel the pictures are complete. They are portraits of friends, memories, (imaginary and real), along with some magical beasts."
Donald Saaf has three new pictures in the gallery. See more of his work here.
