Ward Saunders: Mystery of the Valley


  • glave kocen gallery 1620 West Main Street Richmond, VA (map)
 Ward Saunders’ still life and figures are inspired by the paradox of emptiness; a concept where form relies on space and space relies on form. The emptiness of the “canvas” gives way to Saunders’ paintings as they come to life within the space. Whether using glass or human subjects, he is creating images that dance between detail and soft suggestion. His subjects are both solid and in transition, allowing the viewer to connect and at times to complete details on the “canvas” of their own minds.
