Jorge Santos is opening a new solo show simply entitled “Paintings” at Los Angeles’ 101/exhibit on April 13. Staging impossible situations in his work, Santos’ surreal paintings plunge the viewer into enigmatic scenarios. Santos has a storyteller’s imagination: His characters, with their distinct attributes and chilling expressions, appear to be caught in pivotal moments in their stories, whatever those may be. Take a look at our preview of Jorge Santos’ solo show below, images courtesy of 101/exhibit. “Paintings” runs April 13 – June 15.
