Lynnette Therese Sauer creates mirages from mere ink on paper. She carefully draws layer on top of layer of curlicued marks, creating a yarn-like tactility on her two-dimensional ground. Sauer’s threads of color mingle with subtle precision; there is a clear sense of her hand in the work. Though inherently abstract, these drawings exude a sense of warmth and comfort. Sauer’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States. She studied painting at the Herron School of Art + Design in Indianapolis, IN and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. In addition to her studio practice, Lynnette co-writes Circling — an email newsletter and online archive charting the rhythms of artists’ lives.
