“If it looks real and feels real, do you think it matters if it’s real?” – Daniel Nayeri, Another Faust
Patric Sandri is currently working with lines that stand free in the pictorial space. These are painted on the back of a completely transparent voile / polyester fabric with white and then in the neon colours red, yellow and blue. With this fabric you cannot see neither the fabric nor a structure. Therefore the lines seem to float freely in the air. The viewer perceives the colours on the back only as reflection and radiation. The view of the colour is completely denied to the viewer.
As if out of themselves, thelines shine and reflect light from apparently unknown origins. The white lines become a light source. The neon pigmentation - neon pigments are larger than other colour pigments and therefore create a real inherent luminosity inthe room - form an additional illusory space, which opens up a further level of objecthood.
These works formally approach light art even more closely - and yet always remains committed to painting.
