Notes: The Cuban-born Emilio Sanchez was acclaimed for his series of large-scale, intentionally flat, architectural renderings that revel in the interplay of light and shadow. His slightly abstracted and often abruptly truncated structures are elegantly reduced to their essential lines and colors, emphasizing their inherent patterns. Exulting in the seemingly mundane - a Cuban beach house, Brooklyn bodega, or a suburban porch - Sanchez's distinctive style of thick, dark lines juxtaposed with blocks of color, reveals the striking beauty of the often overlooked.
