Weeks ago I wrote to Sarah in Vancouver because something of hers had caught my eye. Now I think it was Vancouver... funny how location is the one thing that may slip under the radar. She has been a very industrious person and uploaded new work onto her website which she sent me to look at.
I've been observing cross-sections of fruits and seed pods of late and noting the amazing symmetry to be found in some. I see a connection here even though these are complex, layered and assembled to exploit the hard edge to strong effect. Very contemporary and fresh - Sarah's work engages with its repetition yet variation - something also evident in the world of nature that I'm enjoying exploring up close at the moment! Check her website here - with interesting links !
Thanks for sharing these Sarah - by the way - liked reading about your process!
UPDATE from the artist 10.3.10 :
Sarah Gee wrote - Its so interesting that you related my work to the seed pod, because I find all sorts of connections to the natural world - transparent jelly-fish, microscopic life, even brain scans. I like how Joseph Albers said he hated it when people called his work abstract: "its real, not abstract"
