“When I look at the grand view of nature, I often wonder whether what I am looking at is an outcry of joy or lamentation.”
Sarah Saito, currently based in California, reflects her profound emotions through a diversity of subject matter held together by a strong consistency of composition. Much of the strength of this artist's pieces lies in their balance and related shapes while her palette is often muted and elegant, creating a mysterious, moody tone. She manages to keep the creative energy and intensity level at a steady pitch as she blends Eastern and Western styles conveying the resilience of the creative spirit.
