The Arts Club presents new paintings by Cologne-based artist Sarah Buckner, marking her first solo show in London. Buckner’s paintings fuse inspiration from real-life encounters with her imagination, resulting in distinctively dream-like, atmospheric scenes charged with emotional potency.
A distinctive palette defines Buckner’s work, lending them their otherworldly quality and negating them from a clear sense of time or place. The artist explains in a recent interview: “Over the years, I have developed my own personal palette, which of course continues to evolve. It's important to me to find the right tones to 'sing the song' I want to sing, so to speak.” Through a gouache-like treatment of oil paint, Buckner’s fluid yet intuitive approach to the medium transports viewers to new fantastical spheres.
The exhibition is curated by Amelie von Wedel and Pernilla Holmes of Wedel Art, with special thanks to Esther Schipper Gallery.
