Company Meeting: New Works by Robb Sandagata at Storage Closet Gallery
March 4 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
ATTENTION ALL STAFF:
Stop your Tik Tok/Instagram doom scrolling and report for this month’s MANDATORY COMPANY MEETING, in which we will discuss:
grotesque narrative artworks inspired by 3 years of mostly working from home- virtual meetings, toxic politics, impending doom, protests, illness (both viral and chronic genetic issues), collapsing ethics and morality, and grasping for love and hope amidst chaos.
Company Meeting combines paintings and drawings created during the great upheaval of the 2020s. Grotesque, cartoonish figures twist, explode, and bend backwards into psychedelic eruptions of color, pattern, and detail. Sandagata’s works critique and question, melding elements of pop culture, 80s comics, countercultural movements, punk, heavy metal, chronic illness, politics and contemporary art into a visual riot.
Robb Sandagata was born in New Haven, CT and has lived in New York, Arizona, and Massachusetts. Significant influences, in roughly chronological order, include: cartoons, comic books, Dungeons & Dragons, “Alternative” music, punk rock, theater, competitive debate, mid-90s Hardcore, and band t-shirts. He lives and works in Lowell, Massachusetts.
