About

Overgrowth 30, acrylic, graphite, coffee on paper, 22 x 30. Unframed. California artist, Sara V. Cole has a deep and profound obsession with the natural world. From insects and birds and humans to botanicals and root systems, weather patterns and migrations and the effects of systems upon each other, Cole spends countless hours imagining these as visual symbols layered on top of each other. The botanical work on paper starts with poured coffee across the pure paper surface. The coffee blends make different stains. As the coffee dries, "rings" develop as quantities of moisture dries. After 3-4 days the paper is dry enough to work on. Cole uses stencils created from Hybrid forms and shapes of Botanical images combined from her photos, botany books, historical illustration and online searches. The shapes are traced with graphite onto the stained paper. Progressively darkened washes of acrylic are brushed into the stenciled shapes and more shapes are overlapped over and over. Where they overlap, like a Venn diagram, the shared space is painted with opaque acrylic. Sometimes forms are layered so thickly it obscures nearly all the beginning washes and even the coffee. Cole is a nationally represented, internationally exhibited fine art painter with a full-time art making studio practice. Cole earned her BFA in ceramic sculpture and installation/performance art with a minor in art history in 2002. In 2006, she earned her MFA in painting and drawing. Cole has placed work with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Bi-annual Auction, Hilton Hotels, the Microsoft Collection, Stanford University, the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel, the Grand Hyatt in Atlanta, Iberia Bank in Louisiana, and De Anza College in Cupertino. Cole has an extensive list of exhibition history including NYC's Asian Cultural Center Gallery and Sunset Magazine show houses and for events such as a City Year fund-raiser with HGTV's Kenneth Brown. Cole is in the private collections of many patrons including that of Actress Sela Ward. This work on paper is unframed.
