28.03.2014 | SARAH JACOBS | “Ethosphere”

“Jacobs’s new series-in-progress celebrates complication, diversity, and synergy. She creates her artwork painstakingly by hand using the language of patterns.

This series of intricate showy paintings, Ethosphere, speaks of life’s complications, but rather than striving to offer an alternative it glorifies noise, complexity & entanglements. In the visual language of her series patterns representing various paradigms or weltanschauungen smash into other patterns in comic book-style explosions. The patterns often meld together creating new amalgamations, which render the original compositions nearly imperceptible. The visual pleasure produced by these painted interactions is analogous to the beauty of complex societies & thought.”
