Abstract Landscapes by Sara Sjol 

After embarking on a self-described “artistic sojourn” artist Sara Sjol went back into the studio to create new works. “Going in I wasn’t intending to create landscapes, she says. “In late 2016 I had begun my large Astoria piece. The style was different than my latest works -- I struggled with it and ultimately shelved it for many months. After returning from travels I began to revisit Astoria. At that point the whole series came into focus.”

From Astoria to Joshua Tree, Strasbourg to The Black Forest, Sjol captures the essence of her locales with an intricate style that weaves together various visual perspectives with a pop of color to create a new throughly modern whole. 

“It’s kinda like a Rubik’s cube. I dice up memories and place them back together.”
