Birds, oil on canvas, 22" x 25", 2004

Sara Fletcher grew up in Western New York State. She received her BFA in ceramic sculpture from Alfred University in 1998, and a post-baccalaureate certificate in painting from Brandeis University in 2003. She is currently an MFA candidate in painting at the University of Iowa. 

Recently, my subjects, in addition to the light and architecture of the room, have been arrangements of animal sculptures. The animals are a way of making the imagination visible. They represent real animals and their mysterious inner workings, but even more, as sculptures, they reflect an act of imagination present in real space, with real light affecting its appearance. Paintings within the paintings, as well as windows and mirrors, offer opportunities for another level of imagined space.
