Damian Sarno’s portraits and figurative paintings use narrative, atmosphere, and heightened color to evoke dramatic scenarios. Sarno uses the traditional media of oil paint as well as encaustic on canvas to build luminous images of contemporary life. Sarno’s works pulse with an eerie luminescence that makes reference to photo negatives and decaying life.
