莎拉·凯瑟琳·阿赫恩 Sarah Kathryn Ahearn

我的艺术作品融合了四种元素——色彩、运动、肌理和设计,以个人化的单版画,激发出情感和精神上的回应。我的单版画是抽象的、非表现的,用丙烯颜料制作多重层次,借助运动和手势构成图案。

My artwork integrates four elements – color, movement, texture and design – to create individually unique prints that evoke emotional and spiritual responses. The monotypes are abstract, non-representational pieces produced with multiple layers of acrylic paint that is patterned through movement and gesture.

选择对比和互补的色彩是创作过程的关键,多重的版画层次让色彩得以混合和融合。颜料的应用伴随着运动和手势,为版画赋予肌理和设计感的同时,达到最终的表现效果。

The choice of contrasting and complementary colors is a key element in my approach that, with the use of multiple print layers, allows diverse colors to mix and meld. The application of the paint is accomplished quickly with movement and gesture that imparts textural and design features to the print to achieve an expressive result.

莎拉最近从波士顿迁居到南新罕布什尔,开设了艺术工作室,主要利用凝胶印刷法创作单版画。她的版画方法是,运用动作和手势将鲜明的色彩铺设在凝胶板上,建立相互共鸣的、多层色彩和肌理。她的版画作品作为自主表达,在和谐的抽象世界展示相互关联的情绪和精神。莎拉出生于马里兰州,先后获得凯尼恩学院学士学位,莱斯利大学硕士学位。

Sarah recently relocated from Boston to southern NH where she opened an art studio, currently concentrating on monotypes using the gel printmaking process. Her approach to printing uses movements and gestures as she applies vivid colors to the gel plate and builds layers of color and textures that resonate with each other. Her prints are spontaneous expressions exhibiting emotions and spirit interconnected in a harmonious abstract world. Sarah, a native of Maryland, was educated at Kenyon College receiving a B.A. degree (1996, major in Studio Art). Her senior project used liquid silver emulsion applied by hand, a process that informs her gel printmaking process. She received a M.A degree (2014) from Lesley University in Expressive Therapies. Her art skills, developed over the years, were an essential element in the suite of modalities used in Expressive Therapies, as part of the M.A. program.
