Sarah Reesor

For many years Sarah Reesor has been known for her whimsical pins of birds, animals, angels and fish. This summer Sarah decided that she needed to explore other artistic pursuits and we are thrilled to have just received some of her new work. Each small square canvas has been worked "..... using a mixed media approach- many layers of paint, pen, pencil, pastel, charcoal, crayon, carbon paper, ink and so forth - this in combination with some fabric embedded into the layers ..... and a lot of gel medium which I think is what sometimes makes for the feeling of encaustic." There is of course still a whimsical side to the work, with little chairs and flowers floating in the landscapes each occupied with at least one large creature, reminiscent of those pins that made so many people smile for so many years.
