worked with oil paint on jute canvas. This painting includes a certificate of authenticity.
This painting is part of the series “New Species”. Apart from all the pollution issues we are facing, our society has recently been hit by an unprecedented pandemic which crippled our daily lives. In this painting, Sarah expresses the initial feelings that many of us had when we were told that a disease is spreading: It felt like an ominous storm is approaching. The fear and worries of something invisible that could be coming from everywhere and everyone made social encounters part of the threat.
In this composition, she displays how the virus is enclosing on us, like dark cloudsforming in the sky. Anxious and hysterical looking faces are depicted, together with their need for protection using masks, disinfectants, and medication.
Sarah Richani´s paintings from this series portray how our contemporary landscapes are being consumed by waste. These products of modern man’s influence have become part of our ecosystem, almost living among us as a ‘new species’.
In her artworks, Sarah uses bright colors and comical elements to trigger happy emotions. But once the viewer realizes the content displayed, it pushes the viewer to process the image and contemplate.
