About the work
The paintings of Sage Tucker - Ketcham investigate intentional and psychological relationships between color, form, and space. These paintings are process driven with an emphasis on composition and color theory. They are constructed layer by layer with attention to high contrast color combinations the color palette is observationally inspired by interesting atmospheric moments. Shapes are painted repeatedly by the time a painting is complete, any given area may be repainted with a different color combination up to ten times until the right color combination clicks. Her subject matter are mountains, buildings, and shrubbery; together they form a relational narrative through strategic placements within the landscape. The goal is to develop an aesthetically accessible visual language that also activates a range of emotions.
