Sarah Bostwick builds three-dimensional drawings about what is in the landscape, but not in our immediate perception. Her latest work focuses on how to communicate found space through three-dimensional drawing. Bostwick's architecturally driven reliefs can be viewed as totally abstract, or read as familiar locations listed in the title of each piece.
As a 2005 MacDowell Colony Fellow, in Peterborough, NH, Bostwick constructed larger, sculptural wall-drawings based on hidden aspects of both urban and natural structure. These works will be exhibited in "Homecoming" at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Ridgefield, CT in 2006.
Sarah Bostwick's recent exhibition at Gregory Lind Gallery, "Here We Are Here," paired reflections on the built environment with a strong use of material and craftsmanship. Other recent solo exhibitions include "Dimension", a series of wall drawings made from chip board at the Alternative Arts Space, Adobe Books, 2003, and "New Urban Landscape: Cast Mural", Adobe Books, 2002. Her work was part of "Element of the Temporary 3" at Southern Exposure, 2002. Bostwick graduated with a degree in Printmaking from Rhode Island School of Design in 2001. She lives and works in New York City. Her work is in the collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
"Sarah Bostwick makes laser-accurate reliefs of landscapes in pure white plaster. The white-on-white relief 'drawings' are coldly precise evoking memories of minimalism, but without surrendering their representation, and thus their specificity and the warmth of depicting the real."
