About

Sarah Joy Zwarts (°1987, Maastricht) finds in painting a way to approach landscape and memory. The fact that her subjects are often in the past, allows her to handle them more freely. Color adds an important dimension in her artistic process.

Zwarts mainly works with watercolor, because of its possibility to leave space open where necessary - by analogy with the fragmentary character of her subjects. She doesn't use the latter as guidelines, but as an excuse to explore the painterly field.
