Sarah Atlee's geometric abstractions in paint and paper are infused with the play between spontaneity and perfection. "I am increasingly influenced by modern quiltmaking, balancing the dual impulses of precision and improvisation - making perfect versus making do." She explores the pure pleasure of placing color next to color, building a composition one stroke (or stitch) at a time, and honoring artisans of the past and present by building on tradition.
Atlee paints and sews without an alarm clock in her Oklahoma City studio.
