Sarah Crowner


acrylic on canvas, sewn
65 x 60 inches

Sarah Crowner paints, cuts, and sews together fragments of canvas to make her paintings. Lines and shapes are formed by both painted and sewn edges, adding a compositional complexity to the work which might be read as a carefully unified composition or a jumbled-up remix of disparate parts. A reference to textile production, domesticity, and craft is shown in the visible seams, further complicating a work that evokes the history and style of mid-century Hard-Edge painting. Crowner’s work is in the collections of the Dallas Museum of Art; Carnegie Museums, Pittsburgh; MoMA, New York; the Guggenheim Museum, New York; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
