If I Were a Tree: Colby Sanford at Meyer Gallery

Park City
June 28 – July 15

Enjoy live music and refreshments at the opening reception on Friday, June 28th, 6-8 pm.

Known for his tender depictions of domestic life, Colby’s work possesses an uncanny nostalgia – almost as if he’s painting our own distant memories.

Colby A. Sanford is a figurative realist painter with a heart for finding poetry in the prosaic. Growing up in an unconventional home, he was encouraged to paint on the walls of his bedroom and later lived in a yurt. His most precious moments are spent at home with his wife and soon-to-be three daughters, often baking oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Sanford paints in his home at the base of the mountains in Provo, Utah – often in the living room and occassionally in his basement studio. He paints using a restricted acrylic palette on wooden panels, as he works to highlight the beauty in the mundane. Many works are paired with short-form poetry that serves to further parse extraordinaries from the commonplace of everyday life.
