BIOGRAPHY

Sarah Crowner is a painter whose distinct approach emerged from her impatience with the medium. She is known for canvases in which each color and form is comprised of a different piece of cloth, attached via stitches. Her works feature geometric compositions and solid fields of color—a revisit to the traditions of the hard-edge abstraction in the 1950s and ’60s. She also makes small ceramic works with neutral palettes and more organic shapes. Crowner sees an element of theater in her sculptures and paintings, as either backdrops or diagrams for performance: “they offer the idea that a painting or a sculpture might function as a proposal for something else.” American, b. 1974, based in Brooklyn, New York
