Buffalo, NY – Eleven Twenty Projects is pleased to present Ground, an exhibition of new paintings by Sarah Myers.

 

Sarah Myers’s paintings range from intricate, representational images of trees to minimal fields of marks. While they are visually disparate, all works share a common theme: nature and the perceived purity it embodies. Ground explores the minimal side with a series of abstract, gestural paintings, mostly in black and white.

 

Myers explains, “Color can be a vehicle towards artificiality”. As this series is about recognizing the inherent flaws in human makeup, and striving for purity through commune with and respect for nature, Myers went with a neutral, monotone palette. She describes her process of painting as a way to recognize the evil in oneself, and tries to make the right decisions despite it: to have a symbiotic relationship with nature, to achieve as much of the purity of nature as possible in her interior self. She puts just enough paint on the canvas, stopping before it would be muddied by overthinking, as people tend to do.
