Sarah Crowner - MICA - Sept 27, 2010

"Both a painter and ceramics artist, Sarah Crowner might be considered more of a sculptor. She creates her paintings by physically sewing together sections of painted canvas to form angular, geometric works that 'evoke the style of hard-edge paintings of the 1950s and 1960s,' according to the Whitney Biennial catalogue, which featured her participation in the 2010 show. 'With its associations of domestic labor, the act of sewing also confronts the high seriousness of abstract painting with the unpretentious tradition of craft.' Crowner attended Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts in Paris, France and has had residencies in Greece and Portugal as well as at Hunter College, City University of New York."
