Noe DeWitt for Architectural Digest
Noe DeWitt photographed Painter Sarah Crowner for the April issue of Architectural Digest! The American artist is best known for her retro-style graphic paintings, which have appeared in a number of galleries all over the world, including The Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of Modern Art right here in NYC.
Crowner’s work is more than just paint on canvas. As The Whitney writes, “Sarah Crowner creates her paintings by sewing together angular pieces of painted canvas. The geometric compositions evoke the style of Hard-Edge paintings of the 1950s and 1960s. However, the visible seams that result from Crowner’s process complicate pristine surfaces by evoking the tactile qualities of patchwork. With its associations of domestic labor, the act of sewing also confronts the high seriousness of abstract painting with the unpretentious tradition of craft.”
