Hailing from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Sarah Bronstein moved to Brooklyn, NY in 2008 to pursue a career in design. She received her Bachelors degree from University of North Carolina, majoring in Fine Arts and continued graduate studies at the prestigious Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
She has a slew of varied design experiences under her belt including but not limited to album covers, greeting cards, posters, as well as custom-made designs hanging in numerous restaurants throughout Brooklyn. She has previously worked at NYC’s Broadway Gallery also worked at several major art publications including NY Arts Magazine and Art+Auction. Sarah currently lives in San Francisco where she is experimenting with new mediums, including ceramics vases and tiles.
Her textural creations are meticulously composed of torn up pieces of paper mainly from discarded magazines left curbside for recycling. Her earlier work, primarily paintings, encapsulates the same texture and movement that have brought success and attention to her self-titled "Recycollages" (recycled collages).
Her artist statement truly says it all:
"My art is not about representing things as they exist. My interest is in energy: using texture and color to convey the spirit and aura of a subject... my goal is to make energy palpable."
