Pedro Sandoval's "Chamanes" series is a tumultuous dance of color and form, where each stroke is imbued with a spiritual vigor akin to a shaman's trance. The dynamic textures speak to the primal energy of creation, with thick, impulsive swathes of paint juxtaposed against delicate dribbles that suggest a controlled chaos. The use of stark, bold colors against a placid backdrop perhaps symbolizes the coexistence of the tumultuous and the tranquil within the human spirit. In viewing these works, one feels the stirring of ancient rhythms and the echo of a collective unconscious—a visual homage to the mystic healers and the transcendent power of art.
