Born 1974 in Philadelphia, Sarah Crowner is an international artist easily recognized for her rectangular paintings by sewing together a few irregularly shaped slices of canvas, some raw, some painted searing shades of red, orange or yellow.
In her last solo exhibiton at the Nicelle Beauchene Gallery the New York Times published: "Installed as a room-within-a-room, it displays Ms. Crowner’s signature sewn abstractions, stitched together from painted canvas, around a tiled viewing platform that’s her most impressive foray yet into ceramics."
