  • Catalogue Essay

    Sasnal in a painter of the present day, his works often differ so much from each other that one could suppose they had been painted by numerous artists. However all of them share a common deep sensibility of the author which reflects both political, moral and aesthetic aspects of reality. In his works, Sasnal extends different feelings, emotions and events which he has experienced. He lets these moments linger, to gives us an opportunity to focus on details, have a closer look at a car accident or a movie fragment he has seen on the TV. Though the fragment he extracts remains cold and dead, often enigmatic or vague, Sasnal has the ability to transform it into a multi-directional work, infusing it with meaning, a work which dwells upon a detail and eventually blows it up from the inside.
