Anthony Meier Fine Arts is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by artist Sarah Cain. Exhibiting at the gallery for the third time, Cain debuts a series of works on canvas highlighting her unique blending of abstract experimentation with layered dimension and collaged materials.

The ability to merge opposing elements without diminishing their individual attributes is a cornerstone of Sarah Cain’s practice. In ‘synchronized dreaming’ Cain places multiple imperfectly horizontal cardboard panels across the canvas surface to create a look of ramshackle hardwood flooring. The cardboard panels are then painted into square sections and covered loosely in a mix of spattered paint, gold leaf, prisms and screws. The step-by-step movement from layer to layer holds reign on the piece, keeping a balance between the chaotic and the controlled.

This balance between chaotic and controlled is also seen in the duality between Sarah Cain’s work and her personal experience. The objects embedded in Cain’s canvases are sourced from her own daily movements, directly or indirectly. Title word associations, always extant, span from transparent to opaque. The life of the painter and the life of the painting are inherently intertwined.
