When I conceived of this show two years ago, I was drawn to the duality in the phrase “Let's talk about the weather.” At the time, I thought of it as the simplest conversation starter and yet also a politically charged invitation to examine our impact on the Earth’s weather patterns. Now, the phrase also suggests to me a respite from the turmoil of the crucial current events that are re-shaping our country.

With these new paintings, I continue to draw inspiration from landscapes with a focus on the weather patterns that drive them. Thunder Snow, Polar Vortex and El Nino -- all intense forces of nature, not to mention cool band names -- continue to feed my imagination. - John Santoro, June 2020
