What distinguishes Arturo Alonzo Sandoval from other fiber artist working architecturally is his choice to explore through innovation, creativity and recycling twentieth century industrial materials that had been designed as tapes or films. Incorporating these materials into woven or interlaced webs provides permutations for his design concepts which personalize into a visual vocabulary of sky, water, landscape and more recently, issues related to personal spiritual beliefs. Everyday Arturo is awed by beauty and how it influences our world. His desire is to somehow find magnificence and to create beauty from the residue of our culture. His place in the total world order is realized in the art that he creates.
Sandoval’s fiber art works have been installed nationally, regionally and locally. Examples include the UF&CW Union, Washington, KC; the GSA-AIA 6th District Courthouse, London, KY; the Campion International Paper Co., Knightsbridge, Ohio; the Federal Reserve Lobby, Cincinnati, Ohio; the Louisville Water Company, Louisville, Ky; Central Bank, Lexington, PNC, Louisville, Ky; the Kentucky Clinic, Lexington, Ky; The Singletary Center for the Arts, Lexington, Ky; and the Lexington Public Central Library, Lexington, Ky.
