Quantcast
Sarah DePetris

"How to Build a Rainbow" is an exhibition of new multi-dimensional drawings by Dallas-based artist Sarah DePetris. The works capture the energy and potential of the almost and the not-yet-made. With imagery of found stones, rainbows, bricks, and abstracted landscapes, the exhibition reimagines its subjects as icons and objects of potential.

Exploring the distance between absence and presence, the work transforms the gallery into an immersive space of possibility. The play between positive and negative space in the 2D works balances the visual weightlessness of the suspended casts and contrasts heavier and more grounded marks and subjects. The exhibition makes the heavy light and blurs the boundary between the real and imagined. The project exists physically as a series of oil paintings, multimedia drawings and a site-specific installation.

"How to Build a Rainbow" is an exhibition about process, exploration, and experimentation. By creating paintings, drawings, and sculptures drawn from often invisible sites, objects, and debris, the labor-intensive process gives them permanence and value. Through repetition and time-intensive processes, they capture the tension and potential embodied in the almost and the not-yet-made. The exhibition invites the viewer to navigate the space between opposites as thresholds of possibility.

The exhibition will remain on display through January 28, 2023.
