BIO

Sarah H. Reynolds (b. 1987) received her BA from New York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study and is currently a second-year MFA candidate in the Painting and Drawing Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work uses drawing and sculpture to create shapes and spaces derived from her own body. The process of creating multiple iterations from the same reference results in a body of work that is abstracted, yet mimetic and allows for new meanings and interpretations to unfold. Her work has been exhibited in Chicago, NYC and Brooklyn, at venues such as Elastic Arts, Cheryl Hazan Gallery, Philip Bloom Gallery, Cheim & Read, StoreFront at Ten Eyck, Judith Charles Gallery, Theodore:Art, Front Room, and the National YoungArts Foundation. Press includes Huffington Post, Art Nerd, The Guardian, Art Fuse, Bushwick Daily, and Refinery29.
