Sarah Carranza’s work explores ideas of location, place, and the idea of home. Concentrating on themes of location creates a temporal context that addresses contemporary issues of sustainability, geopolitics, and socioeconomic/physical locations. This criticizes our domestic practices and their relation to political landscapes by focusing on the evolving tension between the two. This tension ultimately dictates our realities. The personal is political, and the political is metaphysical.
In painting, Sarah tends to focus on landscapes, foliage, and botany. Sarah recently started exploring cartographic references to her paintings to further address sustainability, geopolitics, and our interaction with the environment.
