Recently in my practice I have been focusing on abstractions generated from art historical paintings and references. Specifically pulling inspiration from mid to late medieval art and into the renaissance, these paintings may refer to their sources compositionally, colouristically, and sometimes rather literally. By utilizing historical paintings as reference material I am able to generate an image quickly, and efficiently get the paint onto the canvas. This becomes the “jumping-off-point”, and from there I am able to decide how to interfere with the images and turn them into something new.Sarah Fabrizi
