Thursday, January 10th, 6pm to 8pm
Please join us at Nancy Margolis Gallery on Thursday, January 10th, from 6pm to 8pm, for the opening reception of Sarah Lubin’s solo exhibition.
Sarah Lubin is a figurative painter who creates familiar, everyday scenes marked by stillness and mystery. Lubin, who earned a master’s degree in art history, draws inspiration from ancient sculpture and early Renaissance paintings. The artist’s subject matter focuses on the commonplace, for example, loading a dishwasher (The Spoon, 2017), experiencing insomnia (Insomnia, 2017), or going grocery shopping (Checkout, 2016). Painted primarily with oil on canvas, the figures in her compositions suggest a stoic remoteness that make them appear emotionally detached from their environment. Through her treatment of routine activities, Lubin transforms the mundane into something monumental.
