Galerie Les Territoires: press release / invite

 

 

Héliport marks the arrival of new paintings by Sarah Rooney circling around a conversation with landscape. Interested in the slowness of the studio process, which opens up a space of reflection, she approaches landscape as a meeting place of an 'alphabet of marks'. Like silent markers of time, minimal spatial-line-paintings, including a horse in transit and a helicopter in flight, act as counterpoints to color-filled landscapes. Weaving together traces of displacement and mobility through line and color, the paintings unravel a world of painterly vocabulary from subtle meticulousness to the vibrancy of musical gesture.
