Sarah DePetris is a conceptual painter whose practice also integrates installation, sculpture and printmaking. DePetris often depicts imagery of pyramidal structures and piles of stone, emerging from her fascination with monuments and idolization. Her work explores the gaps between reality and desire, often rendering believable but impossible scenes with bizarrely vibrant colors, bold mark-making and distorted depths. DePetris exhibits her work nationally, with an upcoming solo exhibition and installation at Tank Space, Sawyer Yards in Houston. Her work has been included in international, national and regional juried exhibitions, including the Vignette Art Fair at the Women’s Museum Building in Dallas and the Rosenzweig Biennial at the Arts and Science Center Museum. Her work is included in the permanent collections of Capital One and the University of Texas at Tyler. Since receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art, DePetris has been living and working in Dallas, Texas as an artist and AP Drawing instructor.
