Artist Statement

Saul Sanchez works in different media including video, installation and painting. His work focuses on experiences of delay, process, and indeterminacy. He has explored ideas about waiting, painting, and history. Present time is core in these explorations. He is interested in extending the temporal elements of the waiting time where the expected does not arrive on time, and/or a process is stuck in a specific time. The delay shows not only the unexpressed but also the invisible. In this operation placeholders fill the anxiety of future; therefore the continuity of the ‘process of becoming’ is not interrupted.
