|“Shape and Space"
by Sarah Kuhnell
Artist Sarah Kuhnell’s show and sale, “Shape and Space,” will be featured at Art Central Gallery
through the end of March.
Sarah’s new work in pastel invites the viewer into the openness and space of our Lowcountry
vistas. She says, “While indicating size and distance in a landscape, shapes also draw the eye
here and there. In this series, there are few objects to regard as shapes.” The artist asks the
viewer to feel the openness and space created by few large masses of color contrasting with
Sarah explains the beginning of a landscape, “The vault of the sky overwhelms me when I’m out
painting or taking photos. I love the low line of horizon with sun everywhere. When painting
outdoors, I see colors moving in and through clouds, over and through water, and reflected in
waves splashing onto the beach.” Sarah’s painting, “Sunny Beach,” is the distillation of the artist’
s sensory overload. It’s what is left when she filters out all of the extraneous details and brings
her attention to clouds shifting form in the distance, to a warm sandy path to the water, to a
rising tide in the reeds.
As she considers numerous opportunities at her chosen painting spot, nothing beckons the
artist quite like a path. In “Path at Breach Inlet,” Sarah willingly follows along, noting the foliage,
the colors, the smells and sounds. Down to the beach she leads the viewer, feeling a great
expanse of sky all around.
Sarah will greet guests at her reception at Art Central Gallery, 130 Central Avenue, on Third
Thursday, March 21st 5-8pm.
