FLECK FINE ART EXHIBITION
"Taken By The Sky" by SARA SHIELDS
pastel on paper
41”h x 50.75”w (unframed)
Sara Shields’ pastel figure drawings seek to reclaim the feminine form from societal stereotypes and expectations. She presents it not in the context of an externally judged “beginning” or “ending” point, but in an eternal present which is the moment being experienced by the viewer, a timeless middle ground typically ignored in our polarized society. Shields shines a light on what is found in between conscious moments in the arena of relatable human experience and emotion. She presents the inherent beauty of imperfection, intricately delineating the pathways to inner and outward healing.
