Through my travels with Mr. Forager, I’m always struck by the many similarities there are to be found in such vastly different landscapes. And how, the elements of each interact with one another in a very specific way. The Chroma series of Ohio artist John Sabraw, a passionate environmentalist, are inspired by the micro and macro worlds we find ourselves in and our connection to every one of them.
These unique works are created by layering paints of varying viscosities, allowing them to intermingle and naturally evolve in response to the environment of his studio.
In each we see what could be the tide pools of Yellowstone or blood cells within our own bodies. They could be images made by satellites or microscopes. Whatever it is that we see, is a part of our world, whether it be nearby or far, far away.
