Artist Statement

Sarah Bing BFA

The Expressionism art movement, entangling the imagery of expressed meaning and emotional experience on canvas, principally influences my original oil-on-canvas paintings. To capture the unexpected vibrancy of everyday life, the colours I mix are vivid and exaggerated.  My raw application of paint to canvas allows for the subtleties of colour to be amplified within each brush stroke. The paint feels like liquid silk under my brush as I move it around the canvas.  My interpretation of the subject matter ultimately becomes less grounded in realism focused rather on a dreamlike quality.
