NEW YORK (October 25, 2022) – Artist Sarah Sczepanski will debut a new monotype series at The Other Art Fair at Agger Fish in the Brooklyn Navy Yard November 3–6. The abstract series evokes the calming harmony of nature. The Other Art Fair is the leading artist fair to discover and buy art directly from the best emerging artistic talent.
Growing up in coastal Massachusetts, Sarah has long been inspired by the beauty of the natural landscape. Her latest series of prints echo the swells of the ocean, gentle crests of mountains, and shifting light of the season. The serene style of the abstract works features a palette of rich blues, greens, umber, and mauve and beautifully complements a range of interiors.
“I’m thrilled to be returning to The Other Art Fair this fall as one of the only monotype artists participating in the show,” said Sarah. “This collection is especially significant to me because it was inspired by some of my favorite places. I am also excited to show my new monotype collages which are a departure from my traditional monotypes. I had fun creating the collages and experimenting with a new medium and making the abstract compositions”
Sarah is an artist and designer based in New York City. Her artist focus is on monotypes, one-of-a-kind works created by painting directly onto a plate and running the plate through a printing press. She is drawn to this style of printing making because it always includes an element of surprise. Monotypes can also not be reproduced and are therefore different from other printmaking processes like intaglio or lithography.
Framed original prints, mixed media collages, and giclee prints will be available for sale in a variety of sizes and price points. This is Sarah’s second time exhibiting at The Other Art Fair. Her work will also be showcased later this year at Red Dot Miami during Miami Art Week from November 30 - December 5. Red Dot is a curated, gallery-only contemporary art fair featuring 75 top galleries from around the world.
Sarah is also the founder of the company ARTXTILES which was founded with the vision that beautiful art should be a functional part of our everyday lives. Her one-of-a-kind monotype prints have been created into handwoven rugs, pillows, quilts, and other stunning textiles for the home.
