Sara Girletz grew up in Oyen, Alberta and currently resides in Calgary. Her work originates from a painting background and today she is currently maintaining a multidisciplinary art practice.
In her work Sara collects moments and communicates them through the use of gesture, washes, photography, found objects, texture, layers and mark making. A mixture of paint, photo transfers, oil pastel and graphite reinvents her work and keeps it interesting both in progression and final outlook. Whether it be concept, process or material she is always in a continuous spiral of revisiting, renewing, upcycling, subtracting, adding on and retracing.
Her main selection of work carried at the Lebel is calledhomebody by sara girletz; which is a unique collection of vintage, edgy, upcycled, mixed media art and home decor mainly centered around the motif of houses.
