ARTISTS TO WATCH | Sarah Symes


Have you seen the new art banners in downtown Squamish? They are the work of local artist Sarah Symes. Her bright geometric interpretations of the Squamish landscape are a well chosen addition to Cleveland Avenue.  Sarah’s medium is usually textiles, not digital. Lucky for us, she made an exception this time. Here’s a peek at some of her work.

Textile Arts in a Digital World

“I aspire to recreate my internal experiences of places and people through my work. It represents an abstraction of real life, infused with memories and ideas evoked by the subject. I try to conjure emotion through color and manipulate composition to suggest familiar forms and landscapes.”
–Sarah Symes
