The Mystery of. In conversation with the Sanchez Brothers
Adam Leith Gollner
Montreal, Anteism, 2022, 158 p.
— Gary Michael Dault
This monograph on the Sanchez brothers – with both a “mystery pen” essay and photographs – offers a deep dive into the duo’s world. It’s all there, Gary Michael Dault concedes, including behind the scenes in the creative process: “Technically, the book is terrific. The impeccably fine reproductions of such difficult-to-transmit tableaux as After the Fire (2005) (which looks like Ukraine now), Charlotte’s Hallucination (2022), and the feral Natural Selection (2005) make the book’s pages almost as gripping as the works are in person.” Dault expresses a few reservations: “In accumulation, the book reads more like a lively New Yorker feature article than a searching examination of the creative trajectory of the brothers’ prodigious and usually darkly enigmatic output.”
