Weeds are plants that grow in the wrong place. In a new series of work, Sarah Crowner tames the urban sidewalk intruder that spring up uninvited on sidewalks and empty lots in her New York neighbourhood into highly abstracted vibrant collages. Mimicking Matisse’s cut-outs, Crowner sews together biomorphic shapes into elegant compositions that expertly meld striking colors with an amorphous sculptural presence. Ascetic but bold, Sarah Crowner’s weeds speak of a dedicated commitment to shape and color, clarity of form and restrained chaos – virtues that the real-life counterparts have yet to learn. At Casey Kaplan through April 21.
