Bartos Saro – SYNCOPE – color in abstraction

Color in abstraction can be used in a very unique way. 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. 

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 – textures and color in abstraction. The unique texture of the painting is vivid, tangible, almost touchable. Moreover it very sensual, created by covering the painting surface with sand. The accents in the picture are made by use of metallic pigments.

His work focuses on the structure of materials and color in abstraction. He prefers to work in various media. By clearly presenting weight and movement, Bartos loves to create tension, dramatic, syncoped movement, for he believes that there is spirit in matter – shapes and forms can reflect basic emotional experiences.

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.

Saro’s art of matter focuses on the material and its individual application. Thanks to that, he can get unique results in using color in abstraction. The picture is created with the help of undefined shapes that reflect the moods and intentions of the artist. Thanks to this, the creativity of matter painting allows each viewer to have a private and very individual interpretation.
