Sarah Kaufman’s paintings are dream-like images and stories. People and animals move precariously through her paintings using contraptions, carried by birds, or balancing on stilts. The paintings combine deep textures and vigorous abstract fields of color with finely detailed figures painted in oil to create both a beautiful surface and a surreal narrative.

“I want my paintings to transport the viewer to a different way of seeing and feeling about our journeys in life. Each piece is a story, and people find their own ways to interpret the narratives.”
