    Often Sasnal's palette is reduced to shades of black, gray, and white, with just rare hints of color. In their sombreness, the paintings seem like after images, shadows of pictures. Singular moments are caught in memory, emblazon themselves on the mind, and perhaps interpolate themselves later in connection with other images. Sasnal uses the immediacy and multiplicity of painterly possibilities to open up a complex visual and tactile memory of a media world of luminous and glittering image surfaces. In the same way that bits of schematic information combine in the brain into memories, personal thoughts grow out of his image series.
