BEAUTY: Painting--Andrew Sendor

The absorbing work of New York artist Andrew Sendor presents a delicious art-world paradox: art within art. He paints tableaux of fictional art installations which feature human beings along with various mixed media elements. Sometimes more than one piece of art occupies the frame. And here is the kicker: none of the pieces have been created yet, having dates of creation in the future. And the cherry on the cake of the whole anomaly is that the names of his paintings are the names of the fictional pieces depicted!
