Vestuary Operatics (performance still)

Brooklyn based artist, Sarah Zar, paints, sculpts and builds installations that create postmodern narratives that mingle with external and interior realities. Her paintings, often executed in low-lit, moody colors, are filled with bizarre figures, interacting or inhabiting solitary scenes with other unnatural presences, absences, and transpositions.

She is often influenced and inspired by history, literature and libraries.
