From the Chicago Tribune.
From Art Zealous "Five Minutes with Sarah Cain in Her Dreamy Studio" by Caitlin Confort
"I don’t plan paintings out in a traditional way, I need to remain super open and shed boundaries so I can be ready for the next move."
"I’ve always related to the concept of synesthesia. My earliest work dealt a lot with that idea. Color comes supernaturally to me, I see it without trying. I exist in a pretty open emotional space, both of these things just happen so I just let it work for me."
Interview with Art21.
"My work is about posing this possibility for some other experience [or] world than the one that we experience as mundane."
"My work is really about pleasure."
"I think what kids do as play is a kind of learning and thinking that doesn't have a predetermined end."
Preserved in SAIC alum Roger Brown's (BFA 1968, MFA 1970) former home and studio, RBSC is filled with objects from the far corners of the world of thing-making. You will find works by Chicago Imagists and nonmainstream artists, folk and tribal art, material and popular culture, costumes, furniture, and things found wandering here and there as well as Brown’s Ford Mustang still parked in the garage.
