Venue: Dutton-Goldfield Tasting Room
Join us as we celebrate our current artist featured in our tasting room: Sara Carli. Sara is a photorealistic artist who works in oils from her studio in Sebastopol.
Examining the intersection between time and space, art and reality, Sara captures a precise moment and dissects it. Each detail is meticulously rendered to give the feeling of actually being there, making time stand still, and inviting you to evaluate the delicacy of a moment at your leisure. She uses light to emphasize the supple nature of the body, creating further intrigue. Layers of glazing provide depth. Her painstaking process can take up to two months to create for one painting.
