Sarah Svetlana


Sarah Svetlana is a Los Angeles based artist who, as a painter, explores the fragmentation of the subject in an ongoing search for home. An agency model, turned art model, Sarah Svetlana used her body as the first medium in her initial search for identity and self-expression—her upbringing in the irreconcilable cultures of Soviet Belarus and Immigrant America, has drawn and painted roadmaps between two worlds.

Svetlana's work is “rooted somewhere between the insanity of Kandinsky and the line-certainty of the early 20th century Futurists.” Through the narratives created by a methodical application of color, she delivers an invocation of home - spectral and surreal, but familiar too.
