About The Artist

Sara Ann Rutherford grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and rural Western Pennsylvania. Her interest in creating began at an early age, and after high school, Sara Ann studied painting independently, honing her style. She describes her painting process as stream of consciousness, with each painting often being completed in one intense session. Her work has been featured in the inaugural issue of Dumbo Living Magazine. Most recently, Sara Ann's painting was featured in the "Nurture" group show at Gallery 104 in Tribeca, NYC. Currently, she has a solo exhibition at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. Sara Ann lives in Brooklyn, New York with her partner and rescued pit bull, Tyson.


"My biggest inspiration is the universe. But, more pointedly, the unknown. I’m captivated by the great, daunting and exciting abyss that surrounds all of us, and it moves me to paint abstract and ambiguous pieces. Perhaps that is why so many of my paintings are untitled - to name them, is to box myself in with something finite. Many of my pieces are textured so that when one looks at it they are not just seeing the lines and colors, but they are actually able, just by looking, to feel the essence upon which I draw. By painting these enigmatic pieces I hope to let my viewers see a glimmer of that wonderful, untouchable, omniscient landscape I love."
