"Plein air painting doesn't get any surer or fresher than this." -- --Doug MacCash, The New Orleans Times-Picayune
From the Publisher
"Phil Sandusky's pre-Katrina paintings expertly captured the intimate and complex beauty of New Orleans' neighborhoods and architecture. In his post-Katrina panoramic compositions he has documented the terrible destruction and despair of a city laid low by an unprecedented natural disaster. These works comprise a unique record of the storm's aftermath, yet his rich painterly style and glowing colors give promise of recovery and rebirth."
--E. John Bullard, director, New Orleans Museum of Art "His painterly plein-air paintings are silent moments and immediate images of despair, of what has been lost, and uncertainty. In a sense, they are historical moments burned into the city's history. Seeing these heart-wrenching images stacked side by side in his cramped Uptown studio, viewers with heightened imaginations can almost hear somber strains of Samuel Barber's "Adagio for Strings" drifting through the room." --John Kemp, Louisiana Cultural Vistas
