Sarah Arensi’s mixed media compositions on canvas use saturated colors and shining golden sections to create abstract, contemplative, and meditative forms. With each piece she aims to “bring people to …the state of grace, opening, and bliss.” Each image focuses on inner growth based on the artist’s own personal pursuit of spirituality and meditation. One of Arensi’s primary goals in each piece is to convey a universal language and elicit real emotion and openness from the viewer. Arensi creates works with a divine inspiration in mind. Figurative or completely abstract, each painting shines with bright pigments and metallics, focusing on such concepts as love and mindfulness. Many pieces glisten with textured material, creating multifaceted fields of color. In some, mesmerizing pools of bright color ringed with gold draw the eye into a spiral of light, while in others gold cuts horizontally and vertically across the compositions.
In addition to her mixed media and painted works, Arensi also teaches artistic meditation. This exploration of emotion and spirituality in artwork manifests in her images, which aim to delve into the essence of life.
