Galerie Michelle opened its doors September 2007 and represnets artists from Spiziri Art Group,mostly artists from Maryland, and now reaching into New York and beyond. Galerie Michelle offers some of the best artwork in the area and is so excited and honored to have SACHA, a New York artist, exhibiting his grand paintings. Working in oils and using muted rustic tones, Sacha’s paintings are at once contemporary and reaching back to the Spanish classical painting tradition. Each work rests against a conceptual backdrop of his exploration of human suffering yet many are exuberant and hopeful, both in their color and content. His striking studies of nudes are stylized to melt the bodies in mutually comforting symmetries and these in turn encircle tender depictions of love and the cycle of birth. Sacha has created a unique technique, Circulism; where colors, mixed by making circles with toothpicks, are then transferred to a variety of surfaces, including stained glass and ceramics. This technique allows him to give each subject varied depth and texture, as he captures expressionless faces and fills their (often unseen) eyes with sentiment and inquiry—and instantly connecting the subject with the viewer.
A native of Queens, New York, Sacha had his first show at age 17. His paintings have been exhibited widely in New York and around Spain.
