Working from photographs culled from various media sources or shot by the artist himself, Foldesi’s paintings are eerily familiar renderings of contemporary life. The photo-based compositions are spare, masterfully capturing only the essential details of a given scene. Blank backgrounds become endless skies, while trees burst to life against concrete jungles. Deserted gas stations and abandoned drive-through parking lots become monuments to our times.
