“Between the Void”
New Works by Sarah Jamison
If you find yourself in need of inspiration, in need of an itinerary, I urge you to pull out a map pointing to artist Sarah Jamison’s latest solo exhibition, “Between the Void” at Clamp Light Artist Studios & Gallery. Her work hollers ’round the mountains she’s climbed in her afternoon time, her night time, ultimately forming within the mediums of fabric and photographs. This juxtaposition is as alive as the artist, and yet as ethereal, true, and ever-moving as the connection she shares with her only sibling, her sister.
As if my words could do the artist’s work justice. As if my words could embody all that she seeks to create, to give to others. Her perspective is as unique as the rise and fall of each formation spread across the walls of San Antonio, and will speak long after it’s taken down, nail by nail, frame by fabric.
To be brashly boisterous, this show is not one to miss.
Statement from the Artist
I was thrust into a black void, floating aimlessly. Some days, I could not tell if there was any movement at all. Was I standing still or riding an unforeseen current? Off in the distance, I might see a flash of light. Here, or there, no rhyme, no reason. Gradually, the luminescence came closer and lasted longer. I was able to piece together this new landscape and I began to explore. After all, this was transcendence. Not the blissful state I always envisioned, but instead, the deep darkness that forces you to face yourself. I know my sister is on her own journey after death. Our realities parallel, our journeys mirroring each other. One in life, one in death. This body of work is the photographic manifestations of our journey together, connecting memories, desires, and our collective conscious.
