SARAH LUTZ presents new paintings from her recent series titled, Tales from the Garden and Other Mythologies, a suite of large oil paintings that seems actually to spin, swim, swirl and dance inside the formal painting issues they respect. Like an elegant guest Sarah’s paintings do not forget the etiquette of their occasion but are definitely the life of the party. Her vibrant colors are joyful and warm, her playful shapes seem to jump out of contemporary urban culture to theatricalize her work’s landscape spaces, riding on light and skimming on her fine drawing skills, they make a flat land of forms on which her patterns and textured surfaces perform. Baroque yet tailored, these ‘Tales’ are unconventional and utterly convincing.
