All Things Project is pleased to present SARAH CRUMLICH: LIFESCAPES, paintings by the artist intently examining portrait and landscape traditions. However familiar shared natural vistas may be, certain human and topographical features are rarely discussed at length– even more seldom, carefully gazed upon. Our ‘scapes in life are lost on us on the way to . . .
Certainly, All Things Project has presented humanity in its passionate extremes many times (Figure Us Fancy or Jonathan Cowan: After Your Revolution, just to name two). In this exhibition, painter Sarah Crumlich steadies our attention towards the quieter in-betweens of life: to creases and wrinkles, on aged physicality, a slow-burning glow, a sustaining smile somewhere. The paintings, many intimate in scale, are another level away from the spectacularized, techno-geeky, youth-worshipping, buy-able landscape with which we are accustomed. So . . . Over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother’s house we go!
Sarah Crumlich writes, “What I’ve come to call ‘Lifescapes’ affords a moment, an impression of a very precious fragment of time and knowing to be cherished.”
