LIVE #4: “1007” BY SANTIAGO GARCIA
30 x 30” oil on canvas. The work of Santiago Garcia explores the wondrous, colorful and always intriguing world between figuration and abstraction. Many of his paintings depict Converse shoes that serve as metaphors for family, relationships, and reminders of where they’ve been and where they’re going. The high-top sneaker has long been the symbol for the Greater New England JDRF One Walk, a community-building fundraiser, drawing thousands of walkers each year. Because of the connection, Mr. Garcia created this painting specifically for the JDRF Gala. The numbers and sometimes words you see in his paintings are based on Divine Proportion, which is a mathematical ratio that ultimately determines the patterns and proportions of the painting. Also, on numerology, each number has significance and meaning. Sometimes that meaning is subjective and not explainable. Based primarily in Uruguay, Santiago Garcia is represented locally by the Eisenhauer Gallery on Martha’s Vineyard. More information can be found at eisenhauergallery.com. Generously donated by Eisenhauer Gallery and Lisa and Neil Wallack.
