Office Baroque is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition of Sadie Laska.
Sadie Laska’s paintings are lyrical and messy American abstractions. Congested scribbles, exclamations, and quick figuration form vertical landscapes on colored grounds. Whether depicting a rock and roll cliche, or veering more closely to that of an abstract bouquet, the paintings are trashy and fun, sincere in their irreverence.
Painted guitar shapes act as the body in relation to the abstract still lifes and landscapes. The guitar is the tool, an axe that carves the mark, and serves as a reminder that all painters want to play in a band.
