Sarah Cain is a Los Angeles–based artist whose work explores boundaries between painting, sculpture, and installation. She is fixated on putting paint where it belongs, which could be just about anywhere. The 20 results in her second solo show at Honor Fraser Gallery range from splendid to magnificent.
Cain has lavished paint on walls, floor, ceiling, upholstered furniture, wood furniture, dollar bills suspended from monofilament and rectangles of canvas hanging loose or stretched on variously sized frames (conventionally known as paintings). She pairs paint with gold and silver leaf, stereo headphones, beads, a pot holder, necklaces, thread, crystals, dried roses, sea shells, a huge palm frond, a broom, a flower vase, sand, string and glitter.
