Sarah Crowner, painter and ceramics artist, Brooklyn, New York
We love how our artist of the week creates her paintings. She physically sews together sections of painted canvas to form angular, geometric works that “evoke the style of hard-edge paintings of the 1950s and 1960s,” according to the Whitney Biennial catalogue, which featured her participation in the 2010 show. “With its associations of domestic labor, the act of sewing also confronts the high seriousness of abstract painting with the unpretentious tradition of craft.”
