Sarah DePetris is an artist whose practice incorporates installation, painting, sculpture, drawing, and printmaking. DePetris often depicts imagery of pyramidal structures and piles of stone, emerging from a 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 upcoming solo exhibitions and installations at Tank Space, Sawyer Yards in Houston, Texas, and at the Fort Worth Creative Arts Center in Fort Worth, Texas. Her work has been exhibited 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 in Arkansas. Her work is also included in the permanent collections of Capital One and the University of Texas at Tyler. Since graduating from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2009, DePetris has been living and working in Dallas, Texas. She is currently pursuing an MFA in Drawing and Painting at the University of North Texas while working as a Teaching Assistant and Lab Instructor.
