When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Robert Sato

"Unearthing" 2011
"Mass Gathering" 2011

"Metal After Math" 2010

"No Touching" 2011
"Giant Down" 2011
Robert Sato is part of a new popular surrealist movement, but his work does not reflect much of what others are doing in this field. Landscape or landscape-like constructions seem to figure prominently and there is definitely an element of natural and man-made mash-ups going on. But beyond that I'm fairly at a loss for words. No matter. It's about looking and especially here, looking closely. He creates elaborate if cryptic worlds and the level of detail is an essential element. Go to his website (www.robsato.com), look at some of the detail images. You might have no idea what is going on or what you're even looking at, and you will not likely know what any of it is supposed to mean (the search for meaning in art is mostly overrated nonsense) but it's a fascinating exploration nonetheless.

thanks to the folks at www.booooooom.com for posting his work.
