Sarah Ferguson: NEFELIBATA
Nefelibata is a Portuguese word meaning cloud walker, derived from 'nephele' (cloud) and 'batha' (a place where you can walk). Ferguson interprets this as an invitation for reflection; reflection of what we see in others as well as ourselves. These paintings explore that idea through their unifying sky blue center and their differing outer diffusions of color. Playing with the infinite trifecta of light, color and perception, Ferguson’s systematic compositions produce visual effects of surprising subtlety.
Sarah Ferguson is an admirer of the Light and Space art movement, Minimalism, Hard-edge painting and Geometric abstraction. She lives and works in Austin, Texas.
