    Sanders explores internalized fears, spirituality, and the human condition through a series of works on paper and paintings executed over the past two years. The paintings stem from the works on paper, which Sanders creates while sitting in church. Many depict personified characters, insects or cheap plastic Teleflora vases (an object that Sanders obsessively collects from thrift stores). Sanders places these characters into narrative and surreal settings. Despite their cartoonish quality, the works suggest a deep level of introspection. Through metaphor and symbol, they become a collection of visual parables meant to unearth hopes and anxieties, both universal and unique to Sanders’ own experience.
