Earlier this month the latest exhibition in the ANFA gallery’s new space opened. The exhibition features the work of three artists, including a new artist to the gallery, Sara Pittman. From the moment we saw the exhibition’s previews on the gallery’s Instagram feed, we knew we wanted to check it out.
Seeing Sara’s work in person is an absolute must, her work is ethereal and otherworldly in the most beautiful way and there’s nothing like seeing art up close.
About the Artist // Sara Pittman
“American painter Sara Pittman is interested in the exploration of intuition and its relationship to space in her atmospheric, non-representational paintings. The artist’s desire to escape familiarity can be felt through her distinct, sfumato approach to painting in which she blends edges, softening shapes, and marks to create movement that is dreamlike and mysterious. Her paintings, which are often described as exuding an emotional aura, are recognizable for their ethereal quality and ability to draw the viewer in through the use of light and dimension. Symphonic yet deliberate shapes collide with chaotic marks in what becomes a harmonious exchange between intention and instinct.” — ANFA
About the Artist // Thomas Hager
“Thomas Hager is constantly pushing the boundaries of the photographic medium using histroric photography processes, painting techniques and the latest photography technology.
With his visual explorations of time and beauty, Hager continues to pay homage to art history while creating original photographic innovations.” – ANFA
About the Artist // Jacob Dhein
“Jacob Dhein was interested in art as a child, using crayons and colored pencils as his medium of choice. He spent hours intricately crafting drawings of comic book heroes and animals. It wasn’t until he was a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh that he decided to take a drawing class, which he found so intriguing that he was compelled to take sculpture and painting. During this time he met several accomplished and influential artists who encouraged him to pursue a career in art. TC Farley and Lin Hu, two of Jacob’s former professors, taught him various aspects of what it means to succeed in the fine arts.” — ANFA
