New Work By Sarah Winkler
March 3 - April 2nd, 2016
Helikon Gallery is pleased to announce Formations, a solo show of new work by Sarah Winkler in Gallery 101. Sarah Winkler’s work lies “at the boundaries of realism and abstraction, modernism and minimalism.” In this exhibition of new work by the British-born artist, we are drawn into the rich and varied landscapes she constructs through her layered approach, the imagery inspired by mountainous Colorado surroundings and Western Deserts but ultimately formed by her signature aesthetic. Sarah says of her approach: “my layered and sectional painting process mimics the addition and subtraction of geological textures, over time, in landscape formation. Sketches and ideas are hashed out in drawings and torn paper collages using my own fabricated papers and imagery. I build up the larger paintings in sections and treat each area to a different “erosion” technique. 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."
