About Sara Sepulveda

Sara Sepulveda is a Spanish painter based in Basel whom work features a poetic view of abstraction.

She focuses on the perception through the landscapes of our interior topography and the places where our memories live.

Her artworks express a reduction of reality to an emotion using the play of light, the beauty of colors and the sensations of textures. Her landscapes represent “abysses of nudity, spaces of silence or shelters of harmony” where the viewers travel and build the visual architecture of their own feelings.

In her creative process, she uses the overlay of materials, like plaster or paper, and the transparency of layers. She also uses metallic paint and metallic pigments mixed with other colors to make the changing reflections of light part of her compositions. She adapts this process to different techniques, mostly mixed media and collage on canvas or paper.

In her artistic career, she participated in international solo and group exhibitions and her paintings are mostly located in Swiss, German, Spanish and Danish collections.

Education

She majored in Architecture in Valencia and Rome and participated in many artistic and interdisciplinary workshops around Europe. She learnt cold wax medium with Rebecca Crowell in Italy, engraving in Taller Manolo Hugué in Barcelona (Spain) and did land art projects in Denmark.

She also wrote award-winning poems before becoming a professional artist.
