Sara Allen

Philadelphia, PA

Résumé

Artist Statement

Sara is exploring ways of illustrating the naturally aging body with its creases, folds, and rough textures, its bumps and lines and spots. INSCAPE: Landscape of the Self, a solo show at DaVinci Art Alliance in 2022, a series of self-portraits that move from black and white to color images. Inscape plays with “landscape” and “in” or “interior” to suggest emotions arising from from the exploration of the physical nature of the aging body. In FRAGMENTS, a solo show at Abington Art  Center in 2023, she seeks to make the ordinary body strange. The parts are familiar: the neck, the brow, the back, the fingers and hands, the legs and feet, the torso from the side or the back. The images are playful, unexpected, even strange. She hopes the images encourage the viewer to look anew at what is beautiful and fascinating about the human body.
