Sarah Kabot l Quarter Art
Sarah Kabot works center around installations, deconstructions, and drawings that remind the viewer of their ever changing perceptions of art.
"Making, for me, is an act of unraveling, of revealing structure at a precise level. The installations take visual cues and materials from a location to create a secondary experience of that location. Wall drawings analyze and amplify specific aspects of a chosen space, using the tools of repetition and subtlety to create tension between site and intervention. Repetition, inherent to the process, optically enhances and torques perception. And subtlety encourages the viewer to be attentive to the nuances of the transformation. The work proposes an alteration in comprehension, encouraging the viewer to question his or her own perceptions. The meaning, significance, and even location of objects are not fixed. Potentially, everything could be different."
Sarah Kabot engages in both local and national exhibitions. She is also involved with public art, specifically 2008 Paved Areas in Cleveland's Avenue District. She received her M.F.A. from Cranbrook Academy of Art and her B.F.A. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Her works have been reviewed by many publications including The New York Times. Currently, Kabot teaches at the Cleveland Institute of Art.
