Artist Statement

My name is Sarah King. I believe my work to be free flowing with a strong emphasis in the looseness of the brushstroke. By emphasizing aesthetics, I examine the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of sight based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us. Rather than presenting an accurate reality, an illusion is constructed to appeal to the realms of our imagination.

My paintings radiate a warm and unconcealed serenity, beauty emerges. The visual characteristics further complicate the reception of their many layers of meaning. By exploring the concept of landscape, I entice the viewer into a diverse world expressed in a unique method. I work to establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its beholder.
