A Terracotta Warrior statue sits amongst the shadows. ~~~~~~~ Mood. Space. Narrative. Sara Gardner explores how texture, colour, and an individual object can be brought together to create an evocative tableau. Taking ordinary, everyday objects as her subjects - an office chair, a carousel horse, a bicycle - Gardner imbues these things with a sense of place: these are objects that are meant to be occupied with a body, but they are presented here, empty. Her work resonates with psychological energy, suggesting the longing for a moment just missed, or the anxiety of something unknown about to occur. Her bold paintings can be found in private collections throughout North America. ~ Katherine Somody, Curator
