User Spotlight | Abbey Lee Sarver
One of the most understated elements in Abbey Lee Sarver's art is its consistency. Not only in the sense of a high level of refinement from piece to piece, but also a consistency of composition, an underlying visual logic of saturation and intensity that carries from landscape to collage and everything in between.
Sarver’s collage work is especially outstanding given the sometimes muted impact of the medium. In pulling content from existent sources, there’s often a focal or textural variation from element to element that shows the “seams” of a piece, which is distracting but often unavoidable. In Sarver’s case, there’s no such illusion-breaking irregularity. Instead, everything is perfectly sharp, often loudly lit and dizzyingly cohesive.
And while there’s definitely extravagance and adventure in Sarver’s collage work, her photography is complementarily quiet, often seeming to consciously balance out her collages’ futurist psychedelia with quiet, even somber landscapes and portraits. Abbey Lee Sarver’s work continues to develop a fascinating visual language using media through which genuine novelty is both hard-won and rare.
