Drawing as a Mirror: Sarah Grass's Studio Spotlight

By Kate Parvenski

Kate is the Director of Content for Testudo and a Brooklyn-based multimedia producer with a passion for art and storytelling. Her work focuses on documenting and showcasing artists working across a variety of mediums.

Sarah Grass’s drawings are a testament to the profound connection between inner experience and external form, embodied in the ever-shifting symbolism of a shapeshifting dachshund. With soft colors and intricate linework, the Chilean-American artist treads complex regions of human consciousness. Each drawing becomes a visual diary of heightened emotions and self-reflection, inviting viewers to explore the depth and fluidity of their own psychological landscapes.

Join us on our visit to Sarah’s Ridgewood, Queens studio for a behind-the-scenes look at her meditative drawing practice.
