Pollination, Recent Encaustic Works

December 18 - January 31, 2015

Denise Bibro Fine Art, in Chelsea, New York is pleased to announce Sara Crisp’s fifth solo exhibition at DBFA, Pollination, Recent Encaustic Works. Running from December 18th- January 31st, 2015.
Sara Crisp’s recent encaustic work is influenced by the inherent cyclical reproduction process of flowers and her recent reading of the elegant scientific essay written by Loren Eiseley, How Flowers Change the World (1907-77). Through her artistic journey and research she has found herself one with nature. As in her early encaustic work she still presents and preserves the organic purity of nature and its symmetry. The complexity and nuances of flowers exemplify the complexity of all that is living.
After moving from the city to the country in Maine, Crisp has found herself. Surrounded by nature and having inherited a garden, her self-awareness and artistic vocabulary has broadened. The mundane is once again exulted and celebrated; Reminding us that of the incongruous characteristic of nature and its beauty.
Sara Crisp studied at the Rhode Island School of Design. She has had several solo exhibitions throughout the United States and has won numerous awards including the Best of Show prize at the Cambridge Art Association National Prize Show as well as an artist grant from the Maine Arts Commission.
