Sarah Gopher (b. Israel)
As an undergraduate at Tel Aviv University, Israeli-born Sarah Gopher studied Political Science. She then continued to Stanford University for an MBA and followed it by working as a currency trader in NYC. By the time she returned to her first love, painting, she was a mother of four, knee deep in diapers, and living in Northern California.
Her first art teacher, while she was a student in Israel, was world-renowned Israeli artist Edwin Salomon. After renewing her art pursuit Gopher has taken lessons with a number of Northern California artists and teachers in both private and group/school settings.
Gopher works simultaneously on three personal narratives: Transplantation; Fragmentum Mentis; Baseball is Life.
In the last year, Gopher has moved towards fusing the realistic with the abstract, the figurative with the undefined landscape, and has intermingled brushwork and palette knife work in her paintings to create complementing and contrasting layers and textures.
Sarah Gopher is offering a wide variety of originals for sale in the ArtSlant Salesroom (here).
