ON VIEW THRU MARCH 22, 2024: Making is a means of survival, protection, healing and transformation for Sarah Fisher. Through her work as a multidisciplinary artist and mindfulness student, she learns to sit with all feelings — and gently let them go. Her latest show takes place at LRT Gallery and includes new wood carvings, hand-printed bark, collages, and etched plexiglass.
The exhibition is curated by Doug Welsh, who will engage in conversation with Fisher about her exhibition on Saturday, March 16, 2024 at 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM at the gallery.
Welsh writes: “For Sarah Fisher, making is a means of survival, protection, healing and transformation. The artist remains fully present with painful emotions and experiences as she repeatedly hand-prints crape myrtle bark, collages hundreds of STAIN stickers, carves wood or etches plexiglass. These creative rituals are essential for Fisher as she confronts life’s inevitable “sideswipes” in order to evolve.
In recent years one of Fisher’s key influences has been renowned meditation teacher Joseph Goldstein. His mantra “It’s okay to feel this” has become a tool Fisher repeats in her mind during particularly challenging moments. Through her work as a multidisciplinary artist and mindfulness student, Fisher is learning to sit with all feelings, no matter how difficult, and gently let them go.”
