Paintings and Sculptures by Peter and Sally Saul

Peter Saul has been a practicing artist for more than 50 years. His paintings engage the viewer with a riot of color and images that seem to be a strange hybrid of Surrealism, Pop Art and political cartoons mixed with a Mad Magazine sensibility. His work is both beautiful and repelling as it reflects upon our political and social environment. Sally Saul has been making sculpture for 30 years. Her recent body of small brightly colored figurative ceramic works are carefully crafted to look quick and easy, and full of humor. Like Peter’s paintings, they carry social commentary carefully concealed within the quirky juxtapositions of the figures.
