Sarah Ernst creates intuitive abstract works in mixed media and oil paint. Her mental association with something: a place, the angle of the sun in a memory, stories when there is nothing else left of their subjects, is her departure point when creating the work. She learns much about her association with the context during the process and gets a sense of resolution in this. Sarah receives immense gratification knowing that she has animated what is lifeless into a boisterous celebration of energy and life or a hauntingly elegant study in subtlety. Dimensionally rich in layers and textures, and held together by articulate color plays, she creates pieces that beg intimate investigation, and reward again and again upon repeated visitations.
You can find Sarah at LibertyTown in Studio 14
