Part of The Artist's Life series

"Gorlitz has a singular ability to capture that otherworldly light that breaks through the clouds for just a brief moment and then disappears again for weeks, even months, on end. Trees or people are rendered in a state of absolute majesty."
     - NOW Magazine

Sarah Jane Gorlitz is always trying to push the envelope. Much of her work is figurative and focuses on the negotiation between representation and abstraction. She has worked with this theme in landscapes, still lifes and a series of paintings that beautifully translate the blurred motion, pixelation, dust and white spots of old family film footage.

Hanging new paintings minutes before her first Toronto gallery show and hawking her wares at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibtion, she discusses her preference for using photographs as a starting point, how Art History courses inspired her to paint, and her frustration with the pace of her development as an artist.
