IN PAINT LANGUAGE
Art of Roseta Santiago
Santiago is a storyteller. At first glance seeming to be
impressionistic realism, Santiago’s compositions venture
far beyond the simple fruit-and-bowl tableaux that so many
still life artists pursue. She focuses instead on the world
of an earlier time, creating stories on canvas told by objects
ranging from ancient Native American pottery and baskets
to Asian sculpture and woodblock prints; from bird nests
and eggshells to bleached deer antlers found in the mountains
of the Southwest.
stunning still life work exhibits the mastery and precision
of an artist who has spent a lifetime as an oil painter.
Conversations in Paint Language is a deep look into
our inner selves through the eyes of Roseta Santiago.
Saar is a modern-day Renaissance man who sketches with
