Subject matter: Portraits and Figuratives
Sarah Wilkes is a classically trained artist whose creative construction revolves around portraiture, abstract expressionism, and the blending of both. Wilkes disrupts her natural draw towards realism, captured in a limited, monochromatic color palette, by incorporating a strong, abstract, textured background, thereby making the subject the primary focal point and encouraging viewer connection and interpretation.
