Bartos Saro „Syncope” at IAXAI Gallery


Syncope, in music, is a kind of metro-rhythmic disorder in the course of the song, used as a stylistic measure; a rhythmic phenomenon consisting in the extension of the rhythmic value. 

Thick layers of raw, often cracked texture are strengthened and gain unique beauty thanks to the additional drawing and lightly applied colors. One of his preferred materials is sand mixed with acrylic binder.

Bartos Saro uses a technique taken from the world of music to create synesthetic landscapes. The plasticity of his work is enhanced by his unique painting technique. The texture of the painting is vivid, tangible, almost touchable and very sensual, created by covering the painting surface with sand. The accents in the picture are made by use of metallic pigments.
