I first saw Sarah Meyers Brent’s flower paintings about five years ago at an open studios. I was immediately drawn to her large pieces depicting moody florals dripping down the canvas. Her bio says she is attracted to the wilt and decay of dried flowers. I recently read an Instagram post by one of my favorite Boston area floral designers who urged her followers to embrace flowers at every stage. Sarah obviously does. I love that.
I was lucky enough to work with her when we featured a dripping flower painting at the Webster & Company showroom. Some of her work is spare, with a background peeking through, while other paintings are so textured and layered they’re truly three-dimensional. Sarah also does cool fiber sculptures that included upcycled kids clothing; these seem to grow out of the wall.
Sarah Meyers Brent is represented by Kate Kostopoulos at Chase Young Gallery in the SoWa Arts District in Boston. Her solo show “Curious Cultivations” runs through October 31, 2020. You can see it in real life or online. You can also tune into her Zoom talk this Thursday evening.
