Sarah Kurz

Sarah Kurz received her BA from Columbia University and her MFA from Tyler School of Art at Temple University. Selected solo and group exhibitions include Sargent's Daughters (New York, NY), GAA Gallery (Provincetown, MA), I-20 Gallery (New York, NY), and Geoffrey Young Gallery (Great Barrington, MA).

Sarah Kurz' paintings investigate stream of consciousness moments during which memory and reality coalesce. Engaging with universal themes of longing, beauty, death, and the passage of time, Kurz explores the emotionally complex terrain of her subjects. Her work simultaneously subverts and underscores the universality of individual experience by acknowledging the elusive nature of sentimentality and feelings, resulting in a candid and intimate visual experience for viewers.
