RBC short listed painter Sarah Cale will speak in Art Now on Nov 30, 2011 at 12:00 noon in the Recital Hall

Wednesday, November 30, 2011 - 12:00am - 12:50pm

Sarah Cale is an emerging painter whose work reflects an ongoing interest in an intersection of painting and collage. “My current investigations involve drawing attention to paint and the surface it is applied to. In my work, paint is applied stroke for stroke on a peripheral surface (on garbage bags), removed after drying, and reapplied to the surface of wood panel supports. Paint sits literally on the surface of the wood panels, engendering a pronounced foreground and backround since both planes exist here as parallel, not intersecting planes. In this case, the relationship is simplified to demonstrate the background as wood grain surface, and foreground as strokes that sit upon this surface and unfold as a series of spontaneous developments.”  Cale was shortlisted for the 2009 and 2010 RBC painting competition and currently teaches at the University of Guelph
