A big part of my practice is collected objects. My studio is filled with almost every kind of fake flower you can imagine. I like to bend and twist them around, with a little chaotic flare, to get just the right kind of arch in the stem.

About the Artist

Journal: Sarah Ingraham: Thumbnail

Raised on the coast of Maine, Sarah Ingraham (b. 1994) is a Brooklyn, New York-based painter whose practice spans painting, murals, rug making and wallpaper design. Strongly influenced by her background in art history and reverence for decorative traditions in craft, she looks to ceramics and textiles from all over the world as inspiration in her work, which combines ancient motifs with a fresh palette. Sarah’s paintings draw upon the long lineage of still-life and landscape painting, recasting these genres in a contemporary light to explore themes of overindulgence, pleasure, and vitality.
