Sarah Meyers Brent
How does your work address the relationship between the human and natural worlds?
These pieces were inspired by blooming flower arrangements in colorful vases that wilted as I worked on them. During the process, the imagery in the paintings similarly grew and broke apart. Although I am not an artist who has mapped out the meaning of my work ahead of time, I bring to it whatever I am thinking about, including feelings surrounding motherhood, concerns about the political climate, and fears regarding the destruction of the environment. I believe that all of these elements are wrapped into these pieces.
