Openings: Rob Sato – “The Open End” @ Copro Gallery

Last weekend, the Copro Gallery unveiled new work by artist Rob Sato. Named The Open End, the exhibition showed a variety of the artist’s latest art which continues to be nothing short of impressive. Various pieces on display featured a combination of the organic and the mechanical, but without going to either side of the spectrum. As usual, his artwork features a great sense of storytelling and movement that’s not always easy to capture on a canvas or print. However, his technique and style lends […]

Openings: Rob Sato – “Muscle Memories” @ Copro Gallery

Last weekend, AM stopped by Copro Gallery to check out the new body of work from Rob Sato entitled “Muscle Memories.” This collection of watercolors, limited editions, and even some works on slides bombarded attendees with the stunning individual detail of each piece, yet if taken as a whole when taking a step back, the kinetic clusters define intricate compositions and gives a look into Sato’s imagination.

What an awesome and appropriate pairing these two artists will be, as their work both stretch the viewer’s brain to the limit with their clustered imagery and bizarre vision.  If there was a fine line between insanity […]

On the opposite side of the spectrum were tiny works painted on slide film that were still in his signature watercolor style. […]
