Sarah Delaney is a contemporary Canadian artist best known for her abstract paintings. These paintings are a portal into a conversation, telling the story of place; consideration of placement and form of colour gestures offer a visual equivalent to a spoken exchange, where the development of ideas in succession says something beyond any single phrase or sentence.
Delaney offers something contained and humble, yet generously resonant, in each of her pieces, suggesting qualities in the artist herself. We encounter a person and a practice deft at balance, alive between roots and flight, smallness and expanse, stillness and dancing.
The Vancouver-based artist holds a BFA in Visual Art from the University of Victoria and a DID from Vancouver College of Art and Design. Her work has been exhibited across North America, notably the Toronto Art Fair, and the NYC Art on Paper Fair.
