Sara De Christopher

Sara De Christopher is an American painter and abstract expressionist from Los Angeles, USA. She has alternated between working in the USA and Europe for over 30 years. De Christopher is also a skilled designer. She is an art graduate at California State University, Los Angeles, USA.

Sara De Christopher works with mixed media. She is known for paintings and drawings with various techniques such as acrylic, oil and collage. The primary elements of her artistry are colour, form, and texture. She is particularly interested in texture with materials such as wood and jute to build up the image surface on the canvas.

A distinctive feature of her artistry is that the work reveals itself gradually and continuously. She makes the viewer feel that you are never done looking as new revelations are uncovered. Each viewer will reveal something new with their subjective gaze.

She prefers to work in large formats and most preferably in monumental formats. The works by De Christopher that are exhibited in Art Gallery Linn are in small and medium-sized formats. Her varied painting styles and tactile expressions make her artistry interesting for Art Gallery Linn. She has exhibited at a large number of solo and group exhibitions in galleries in the USA and Europe, e.g. in France, Germany and Spain.

Sara De Christopher is inspired by, among other things American Expressionism in the 1940s and 50s. For her, the artworks of Jackson Pollack and Willem de Kooning are inspiring, as well as impulses from Pablo Picasso and Jean Dubuffet.
