Sarah Gamble | Philadelphia, PA
Sarah Gamble received her MFA from the University of Pennsylvania, and BFA from the Corcoran College of Art and Design. Her work has been shown extensively in both solo and group exhibitions in New York, Philadelphia, and North Carolina. She has attended artist residencies at the Millay Colony for the Arts, the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, the Ucross Foundation, the Atlantic Center for the Arts with a Golden Foundation fellowship, the Ragdale Foundation, the Vermont Studio Center, and the Roswell Artist-in-Residence program. In 2009 she was awarded a Pew Fellowship in the Arts for works on paper.
Sarah Gamble's paintings explore the multi-verse, dreams, what it means to exist, and the psychology of regular life experience. While she often finds the visual language in her work to have no literal translation, the current imagery is informed by a lifelong fascination with the dream-world, animism, UFOs, mythological beasts, speculative history, primitivism, and the afterlife. These interests combine and create a parallel world where the invisible is made visible.
