Description: 

Are we worshipping weapons?

Are we in modern times? The world we live in has become increasingly surreal and out of proportion, at times resembling a science fiction or horror movie from the 50s or 60s. Entertainment is obsessed with guns and women. Fundamental religious beliefs are in continuous conflict with each other and themselves. Children are blasted with these obsessions from birth. Sarah Hauser tries to capture these enigmas of modernity by depicting women in classical poses juxtaposed with weapons, as well as armed infants.

Artist: 

Sarah has lived and worked in New York City since 1979, and has exhibited in the U.S. and abroad at such venues as Woodward Gallery, International Print Center of New York, Purdue University, Woman Made Gallery, Lake George Arts Project, and KIWA Exhibition and Tour in Japan. She is represented by Woodward Gallery in New York City.

 

The works in this exhibition are strappo monotypes, an innovative process developed and taught to Sarah by artist Harold Garde.  Sarah is always experimenting with variations on traditional media and pushing their boundaries.  Please read more about Sarah’s process and her background at the following websites:
