This is artwork I need to see in person. Sarah Leahy repeatedly sands Plexiglass and then applies layers of ink wash to create these vivid and atmospheric images. The paintings are screwed directly to a white wall.
From an old volume of New American Paintings "The illusion of light and shadow is depicted, and actually exists, in the ink and the Plexiglass. They are not just the thing, but also the contents of the object- they are the making itself". She is represented by the Kim Foster Gallery.
