Sarah Hinckley
American, born 1954

Using both oils and watercolors, Sarah Hinckley has developed a personalized version of Color Field Painting, influenced by the work of Mark Rothko and Agnes Martin. An intuitive, meditative process of adding layers of color and brushstrokes, and incorporating bleeds and incidental marks, engages her in a lengthy dialogue with each work: she sometimes takes over a year to complete a single piece. Hinckley captures the play between color and surface, often leaving a work untouched for months to allow colors to saturate and spread.
