Sarah Brayer is an American Artist based in Kyoto, Japan. She is internationally known for her large-scale, pourd washi paperworks. Her work is in numerous museum collections including the British Museum & the Sackler Gallery of the Smithsonian.
Mysterious and provoking, Sarah Brayer's Luminosity: Night Paperworks are created from Japanese handmade paper or "washi" infused with photo-luminescent pigments. These paperworks look one way by day, and transform to a completely different image at night. Emitting a phosphorescent glow that is powered by exposure to light, these images show us the place where something appears out of nothing and then returns to it; taking us to the edge of visual perception.
