Statement from the Artist:"**** was the first home. She was my always home, she carried home for me, carried everything it represented—a burden so heavy, so enormous that it encompassed years of memories, and so much space. Without her I am untethered, endlessly longing. I am endlessly searching for home. As I work to prepare for this show, I begin to realize that the textures and colors of my childhood have become markers and traces of a space between a country that no longer exists and a country where I will always feel like a refugee. I remain in a liminal space where I am always observing and wandering.
The first marks, the shapes, are sometimes unintentional, as if the brush strokes strike out memories and words. Then, the colors are layered methodically, over and over, at times with my hands, my mind far away, focused only on the smallest speck of color as I turn inward, painting my memories.
I would like to announce my first solo exhibition, ****, presented by artHYPE, at TAG Gallery, in Los Angeles. Opening reception 9/27/2019, 6-9pm."
In 2016, Sarah Svetlana walked away from continuing a lucrative career in copywriting to develop her unique paintings into a full time commitment.  Since then, her abstract work has been sought after for representation by galleries in L.A., Australia and Israel.   Svetlana won an honorable mention at TAG Gallery’s 2018 L.A. Open, when her outstanding work was recognized by curators and critics.  She was recently awarded the Hotel Sainte artist residency in France.
These unique paintings are inspired by Svetlana's mother’s life, and her own experiences as a Jewish refugee from Belarus.  Each of her abstract compositions is rooted in memory and nostalgic material, revealing emotional truths, and powerful reflexes in the shaping of contemporary painting.
**** is Sarah Svetlana's first solo show.
