Item Description

Title: For Rose

Artist: Sara Santarsiero


Materials: Bass is 3ft x 1.5ft and made of .5in Kleer (PVC). Ink and acrylics.

Artist's Description: I started off by building up the entire surface with very watered down ink washes. While the surface was still wet, I went back in with a rubber brush to break up a lot of the organic forms and create these rigged marks. Once this was completed, I went back in with more saturated, vibrant ink washes, and then tightened up the entire composition with acrylics - white, golds, dark purple pigments.


About the Artist: It was an honor to be asked to represent North Shore Bank for this community-based project. As a Montserrat College of Art alum and Beverly resident, this was a great opportunity to be able share my art with the community. I am a practicing contemporary fine artist and website designer with an active interest in museum and gallery administration.  My personal work is an ongoing collection of images conveying the deconstruction of the female figure, specifically the face. Through unrefined mark-making and unconventional erasing, the original composition and contest of the image is defaced.
