Artist Portfolio: Sarah Mercer

Closeup photo of Sarah Mercer

"After a friend introduced me to the idea of taking up photography, I decided to attempt a “365-day challenge” to take a different self-portrait a day for a year. Using only my Nikon D50 camera, a desk lamp and a remote, I was forced to look at innovative ways to represent myself. The obsessive nature of the year-long challenge encouraged me to take up other works in series, such as the A to Z Challenge, which requires a photograph…

Transparent plexi-glass sculpture

 

Lynn has been spending half of each year living and working both at sculpture and painting, in Italy in a very old farmhouse in southern Tuscany. Her work has increasingly taken the form of large, on-site installations.

These can hang from the ceiling, off the wall,…

"My inspiration comes from an inner vision either in meditation, while doing Yoga, or in a dream. This happens  not often, but when it does I am in a state of quiet receptive mind. The images in my work mirror a spiritual reality.  Pure color expresses a high spiritual vibration. "

"Everything I have ever made is a reflection of the supreme sense of wonder I feel when confronted with the natural world. It is an endless reservoir of possibility. I want my voice to highlight the hidden messages that sometimes get left behind in a society so tumultuous and beautiful and terrible and loud. We have a lot to learn from the plants and animals that we share this planet with. I want to explore these messages…

"My artwork takes me on several different journeys. When painting a landscape I often close my eyes and try to re-create a scene in my head. Sometimes they are from recent memory, but often from the distant past. Other times I refer back to the trusted sketchbook, for reference, and more recently I have started to take photographs to work from. When painting abstracts in oils I just take it one step at a time and often change…

abstract painting of weather patternsWeather Patterns: 1950


" These pieces represent a form of “data art,” and are inspired by meteorological records from the Central Texas area. I translate numerical data regarding temperature and rainfall into a visual language of grids and colors. In this way, I am questioning the ways in which meteorological data is traditionally represented, in an attempt to leave the viewer with a more visceral and non-verbal experience of these…

Multiple exposure photographLondon, Photographic overlay printed on gallery wrapped canvas

"The mind is the realm of art. It is where every person experiences the fantastic, the beautiful, the terrible, and the divine. My goal is to forget the widely accepted reality, the so called mundane. I turn my focus towards the fantastic. Not necessarily the ideal, but the surreal, the mystical, the super-natural. A return to the primal urges of consciousness.
