Statement

Sarah Hartshorne considers herself an Abstract Realist, using the structure of realism to explore the intricacies of color and shape, light and reflection, inspired by the daily life and the world around her. She works extensively with botanical themes, entering her subject matter telescopically to carry the viewer into what becomes an almost abstract encounter with the familiar.
