SARAH FERGUSON CV

Sarah Ferguson is an Austin-based artist who has experimented with the trifecta of light, color and perception for two decades. An admirer of the Light and Space art movement, Minimalism, Hard-edge painting and Geometric abstraction, she aims to evoke introspection through her paintings. Color theory and geometry are influential components in Ferguson’s work, yet serves as a psychological opposite. While the exploration of color systems and theories invite a sense of freedom, the utilization of geometric formations invites a sense of control. Ferguson states, “In a poetic sense, my process is reflective of life’s pattern, an invitation to both the sublime and the applied.” Her work has been commissioned by both private collectors and corporations.
