Sarah Hand: Curious Confections

  • Quirk Gallery 207 West Broad Street Richmond, VA, 23219 United States (map)

"'Curious Confections' is a ramble through the odd recall of childhood into the unknown country of the future. Inspired by snacks, vintage candy, American folk art, and children’s books, the subject matter and techniques (crayon rubbings, simple shapes, scribbles) play together to illustrate the idea of memory: idyllic, foggy, layered, and off-kilter. From bedtimes to birthday parties, we hold on to truest, most tender parts of ourselves.
Richmond, Virginia based artist, Sarah Hand makes narrative paintings, illustrations, and paper maché sculptures inspired by her love of color, and feelings of connection and wonder about the world we live in. Layers and layers of paint, colored pencil, crayon, and pastel add depth to her simple, warmhearted subject matter.
