“Found God in San Diego...nothing comes to mind."
-From “Low Five” 1999 by Sneaker Pimps-
In each of these works moments from songs are stretched to include an expanded field for action. This space is then ruptured by automatic drawing and the use of found form. In this way, the forms give up some of their solidity, hinting at hidden connections between symbols. Some paintings reference my own experience. Some are evidence of collective histories. In this way I hope to blur the boundaries between history painting, identity art and music. These songs have defined periods of my life. With these paintings I trace my experience of the music and the ways in which it intersects with my personal struggle to understand the world around me.
Walter Sutin was born in Trenton NJ in 1985. He has been living and working in San Diego California for ten years. He holds a BFA from Maryland Institute College of art 2003 and an MFA from UCSD 2014.
