Sarah Sze is an contemporary American sculptor. Sarah Sze was born in Boston, Massachusetts in the year 1969. In addition to sculpture the artist creates site specific installation works.

One of her constant themes to explore is the never ending appearance of commercialism and information in our culture. Often times she includes many man made items in her art.

The artist attended Yale University where she earned a B.A. degree. Sze went on to earn a M.F.A. degree from the School of Visual Arts located in New York city.

She has created installations for the Museum of Fine Arts of Boston, Ma.

Gary Peterson is one of my favorite abstract artists. His use of free flowing lines and colors remind of computer screen savers, but with more color and a more artsy look.

Peterson’s work reminds of two artists named Shirley already profiled here, Shirley Jaffe and Shirley Kaneda.
