Sarah Schneiderman

Medium: Found and Recycled Materials and Everyday Trash

Description:  Fractured and distorted political portraits made of trash

Historically, people of great importance are the subject matter of formal painted portraits. Most of the official portraits of U.S. presidents are austere and proper, representing the traditional view of the office of the president. The current white house is in chaos. It is a revolving door.  My portraits of political figures, which I started in November of 2016, reflect this in both the subject matter and the materials used. My portraits viewed from afar look like their subject matter. They are orderly and recognizable. Look more closely. Garbage – debris found on the streets and generated through daily living – is the medium used in these artworks.  My artmaking practice utilizes recycled materials. Protecting the environment and reducing plastic pollution are my credos. AT THE HARTFORD PUBLIC LIBRARY, tables will be set up and materials available for visitors to work on their own collages. www.hplct.org
