Biography          CV          Statement

Sarah Lubin is a contemporary oil painter based in New York. She paints quotidian scenes that are enigmatic but familiar, and seem to exist outside of time. With an art history degree from Columbia University, her studies of ancient art readily inform the creation of her compositions;
often making reference to the contained stillness of Roman sculpture, 16th-century Indian miniatures, aspects of early Renaissance paintings, and Pompeiian frescos.

Lubin uses her skills of observation to examine how postures and interactions can tell stories.

“Color, pattern, and shape interactions often develop intuitively as the story of the scene unfolds through the painting process. The narrative is open to interpretation but I hope the painting can hold the viewer’s attention over time.”
