来自美国的女性艺术家Sarah Winkler寻找有趣的地质景观,并用特色鲜明的绘画风格展现出大地,岩层,山脉以及自然的奇景与风采。

Sarah Winkler seek out geologically interesting landscapes. It might be a specific rock formation, mountain range or natural wonder. She conceptualize a collection of work by relating the action of painting to the geological process of erosion and formation.

Sarah Winkler的成长所在地,美国科罗拉多州山区的四季和气候也影响了她的创作。创作时,艺术家会参考自己面对风景时进行的素描或者是亲自拍摄的照片,然后再用在大木板上做拼贴画的方式将风景变成极有风格的绘画作品,画作中的每一个层次都得到打磨与处理,形成不同的光泽,体现出纹理,层次以及空间深度的多样性。

from Sarah Winkler:

I seek out geologically interesting landscapes. It might be a specific rock formation, mountain range or natural wonder. I conceptualize a collection of work by relating the action of painting to the geological process of erosion and formation. The materials I use are themselves mixed with natural minerals such as marble, mica and iron oxide, cementing the narrative connection of the works to their subject. Seasons and dramatic weather in my mountainous Colorado surroundings also affect my creative directions. I seem to get hooked on a color palette for a while and work with it until organically shifting to another area of the spectrum.

Each painting is the final product of an extensive method that begins with sketches and photographs of landscapes I have visited on my walks. These visuals are translated into collages using paper that I have designed using an experimental process of my own making. The collages are then further developed into highly stylized paintings, which are created by applying acrylic paint to large wood panels. Each panel is sanded and treated to achieve a satin sheen, which highlights the multiplicity of textures, layers and spatial depths.

I am fascinated by the environmental factors that shape the natural world, and seek to imitate their destructive and constructive qualities in an artistic technique. I experiment with solvents, paints, carving implements and sanding tools to mimic the kinetic processes of erosion and deposition, as well as the physical forces of wind, water and temperature. By applying paint in this way, I am creating a history of gestures and actions that form into naturalistic abstracted landscapes with painted geological textures.

The work lies at the boundaries of abstraction and realism, modernism and minimalism. The paintings are often described as “Dreamy”as they evoke sensations of fantasy or partial reality. I intended the imagery to be at once familiar, but to carry an air of play and human curiosity about the natural world as if your discovering a place for the first time.
