Artist around the world: Sarah Cain


Sarah Cain (born February 3, 1979) is an American contemporary artist who lives and works in Los Angeles, California. The paintings and installations of Sarah Cain employ a variety of materials including traditional canvas, stretcher bars, and paint, but also introducing unusual and poetic artifacts: from musical notations to leaves and branches, expanding outside of the two-dimensional plane of the canvas and into the surrounding environment, creating many site-specific installations.[4] Critic Quinn Latimer in describing Cain’s work writes “They court seemingly bad ideas — drawings sport feathers and doilies; installations feature eggs and hippy art teacher-like fabric swatches — and then transform them so deftly into serious painting that it can take a minute to understand what you’re looking at.”
