Artist Statement
My work examines the act of artistic production within the boundaries of contemporary art. It calls into question the significance of an object through reproduction and manipulation of that object, and emphasizes the shift between reproduction and original.

Making unravels reveals structure at a precise level. Sculptures and installations respond to objects, take visual cues and materials from a form to create a secondary experience of that object or location. The pieces use systems of copying, mirroring, and amplification to thoroughly analyze the structures of a chosen object or space. These techniques of repetition create visual tension between the original and the intervention, between the existent object and the imagined object.

Artist Bio / CV

Recent exhibitions include the Apparently Invisible at the Drawing Center, Tactical Support: Curator's Choice -Trevor Smith, Curator at Tracy Williams Ltd., X and Paper City at Mixed Greens Gallery in New York City, and One by One at Smack Mellon in Brooklyn, New York. Sarah has also presented work at the Sculpture Center in Cleveland, Ohio, Sasaki in Watertown, Massachusetts, Raw & Co, in Cleveland, Ohio, the Kirkland Arts Center in Kirkland, WA, and a traveling exhibition and catalog entitled Hot House: Expanding the Field of Fiber at Cranbrook, 1970-2007. She has been granted 2009 residencies at Sculpture Space in Utica, New York, The Nest in Oakland California, and Dieu Donne Papermill in New York, New York. Sarah received her B.F.A. from the University of Michigan School of Art and Design in 1998, and her M.F.A. from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2002. She is currently Assistant Professor of Drawing at the Cleveland Institute of Art in Ohio.
