On Thursday, February 10 Main Space artist and City of San Antonio Department of Arts & Culture 2022 Individual Artist Grant recipient, Sabra Booth joined us for an artist talk. She discussed her artistic practice as well as her new body of work, Snow Shadows, currently on view at Artpace.
Snow Shadows documents the events of winter storm Uri by replicating shadows from frozen and dying plants. “Plants were irreparably frozen, including some from my own yard, such as iconic San Antonio species, agaves, and prickly pears,” said Booth. Utilizing non-toxic color inks on large sheets of kōzo paper, airbrushed with a pearlescent white watercolor, Booth’s abstract paintings will fill the Main Space gallery windows, allowing natural light to filter through the paper, illuminating the paintings.
