worked with oil paint and paste on jute canvas. This artwork includes a certificate of authenticity. This painting is part of the series “New Species”. In this painting Sarah uses cheerful, bright colors to represent the lively energy of a playground. But a closer inspection of the composition the viewer will notice all the left behind objects seen at a playground. This contrast between color and content, creates a conflicting experience and thus prompts the viewer to contemplate.
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.
