Portfolio > New Recollections

Documentation of my artwork at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul MN and Yeiser Art Center in Paducah, Kentucky.

Currently, the work is up at the Yeiser Art Center in Paducah, Kentucky and will be on display until June 17th, 2017.

Statement:

There is a strong gravitational pull towards the familiar feeling of home. Sarah Weiss grew up understanding home as a place of security, closeness, and emotional attachment. In time, however, these realities became memories as family split and moved cross-country. Intimate impressions of home and family became fragmented and obscure. Between is a continuation of 7,223 Between MFA Thesis created in the Imaging Arts program at Rochester Institute of Technology in 2016.
Between utilizes translucent silk as a medium to make work to creates a presence that involves interaction with the viewer. This installation of floating translucent images is sewn together to create physical double exposures. Between reclaim and prize this transient yet firm recollections; grounding points on the theme of home.
