Brackenwood Gallery

A gallery on Whidbey Island, WA representing the very best in fine arts and crafts from the pacific northwest.

SARAH SEDWICK


I paint in gratitude for the simple beauty of the world around me.  In still life, I explore the possibilities inherent in everyday objects when they are truly lived with and seen.  I paint from direct observation, under many different lighting situations. An arrangement in clear morning light is quite another thing when lit by flickering candles.  

In my figurative work, I celebrate the grace of the ordinary female body, striving for sensuality without eroticism, for likeness rather than idealization. Likewise in still life, I strive to paint beauty, but leave the speckles, thorns, wrinkles, and fruit-stickers to tell their tales as well.  

A passage of white wall, closely examined, becomes a subtle rainbow of hues. The many nuances of expression in a simple arrangement of objects - or a pair of steadily gazing eyes - continue to inspire me.
