Hunter Drohojowska-Philp on Sarah’s work:
“Her landscapes rarely include people yet she excels at portraiture especially when
painting her own three children Grace, Gabriel, and Esther. As they change each year, gaining the attributes of adolescence and young adulthood, she paints the loss of youth, the growth of knowledge, and she does so without sentimentality. As with her landscapes, these are paintings not documents, and recall the similarly rigorous stance of American artist Alice Neel. Yet, like her landscapes, these paintings do measure time as it is passed in Los Angeles.”
Hunter Drohojowska-Philp is a journalist and art critic living in Los Angeles.
Her most recent book, Rebels in Paradise: The Los Angeles Art Scene and the 1960s is published by Henry Holt in July 2011
