Sarah LL Milton
My love of art was born in New England, where I grew up in the rural town of Bridport, Vermont. In May 2003, I acquired a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, Massachusetts. In 2009, I was selected as the Bowery Gallery’s Invitational artist, and was awarded my first solo New York exhibition. In 2012, I had a solo art show in Boston at the Gallery at the Piano Factory, and The Boston Globe wrote a review of the show. My most recent accomplishments include painting a large mural for the Boston Fire Department, and exhibiting my artwork in two Boston art galleries. Currently, I live in the Boston area, where I maintain a studio and engage in local art projects.
Unsuccessful prints, drawings, and paintings are the foundation for creating new art. The transition from old to new is expressed with tearing, cutting, and folding techniques. The process of paper manipulation alone is not enough, and new media is introduced allowing for various textures, edges, and shapes to enter the picture. Spray paint, oil paint, acrylic paint, and etching ink are a few materials used. The layers of multiple media build a visual history, which enhances a believable spacial environment. This enables my artwork to evolve and become its own abstract reality.
