Works on Paper
An online show presented by Casey Kaplan reveals Sarah Crowner’s drawings in terms of their establishing the aesthetic and stylistic foundation to her overarching body of work—as manifested in her paintings.
From the gallery:
Crowner engages a wide variety of media to compose formal abstractions that are often inspired by organic shapes found in nature. Pulling references from art history, 20th century architecture and design, in addition to the natural world, Crowner collects this imagery and then isolates and manipulates specific curves, gestures and forms, transforming recognizable shapes into new and unique patterns.
