ARO presents Sara Vanderbeek opening reception
Working within a traditional batik style, Sara Vanderbeek creates vibrant compositions that largely depict the human experience. The artist uses soy wax and fabric dye to develop a visual language resembling contemporary hieroglyphs. A foliage of botanical forms is contained by solid, dark, backgrounds. The works reflect a human tendency towards violence and destruction, community and tribalist, and are framed by the nature from which we rose.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display during the East Austin Studio Tour - November 10, 11, 17, and 18.
