Asserting that abstraction “is always about something...what it is about is beyond confines of language,” Sarah Braman creates abstract geometric sculptures and paintings on pieced-together plywood panels, in which she simultaneously foregrounds the formal qualities of her materials while referencing home, family life, and nature. Among her influences are Mark Rothko, Gordon Matta-Clark, and Ellsworth Kelly. In Braman’s sculptures she riffs on the Minimalist cube, playfully subverting its pristine aesthetic by incorporating utilitarian materials—cardboard boxes, domestic and office furnishings—into her tilting, multi-part works. For one series, she sawed apart a camper van and combined its parts with her own colored Plexiglas boxes. Braman’s plywood paintings in sunset colors recall wood-paneled basements and the sublimity sought by the Abstract Expressionists—a mash-up of the earthly and metaphysical that characterizes all of her work.
