CRAFTING A DIFFERENCE VIRTUAL VISIT ON NOW!

Untitled (88 x 45 cm) by JORGE SARSALE / jaggedart Gallery

Argentinian artist Jorge Sarsale’s work is nourished more by contexts than by the history of art. It includes and is benefited by the influence of architectural thinking, something he acquired practicing as an architect for many years.

It was during the artistic practice that his investigation, appropriation, and development of

different uses of paper consolidated it as his essential material. He uses existing paper, many times from old phone books, cutting, shredding and re-arranging it to form large networks, almost like textiles. Some fundamental aspects of his work are the definition of the surface of the plane as an area completely open to intervention, as an arbitrary slice of a specific situation in which there is no background nor figure; in which treating the surface with shredded paper and applying it on the plane in a controlled way gives it its pictorial appearance. He works on the idea of what is not visible, that which is so overwhelmingly present it turns invisible; what is beneath the surface, meaning by surface that membrane which allows us to go beyond appearance.

This is the point of departure of his work, which can manifest itself on the flat, even surfaces of canvases, directly on the wall itself, or at times appropriating space with interventions which attempt to give a new perspective.

Jorge has exhibited in various museums, institutions and galleries in Argentina, USA, China. He was awarded many prizes and grants and his work is in many private and corporate collections.
