‘Rhythmic Patterns’ by Stephanie Sarris

Sarris has exhibited her work extensively throughout the Detroit Metropolitan area, and is included in the permanent collections of Neiman Marcus, Somerset Collection/Troy, Michigan; Tysons II/ McClean, Virginia; Dallas, Texas; Fort Worth, Texas; Las Vegas, Nevada, Ameritech, Detroit, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Michigan, Lansing, Galleria Offices, Southfield, Steelcase Corporation, Grand Rapids, CompuWare, Farmington Hills and Detroit, and Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak. 

Her paintings are acrylic and mixed media on paper and canvas. The theme of the work is genre-based environments/objects that she has experienced. The spaces and objects reflect images that have affected her emotionally, incorporating balance of structure vs. gesture. The selection of the grid structure is used as a digest to view ideas drawn from a spectrum of personal/cultural sources. The compositions reflect interior spaces that contain various objects and/or spatial viewpoints. The placement of images, colors and brushstrokes connection to rhythm/movement is essential. The element of rhythm is passionate and spiritual through every mark and stroke. Intense hues of color are used to create an all over pattern that is both gesture and calligraphic. The touch is expressive through its vigorous application.

Location: NCRC, Building 18 Tunnel, Connection Gallery
