In the information age a fresh visual aesthetic is being formed. Technology has been providing creatives with original means of expression since its beginning. For example, the birth of impressionism was facilitated by the development of the easel and the introduction of premixed paints in lead tubes. Teasdale is inspired by how technology expresses imagery. She is inspired by the aesthetics of the pixel and likes to manipulate images to find the perfect balance between the virtual and the real.

“My work explores how technology, math and art can, and do, influence each other. I focus on patterns derived from both mathematical and digital worlds and try to highlight the order and beauty found within them. Patterns have an underlying mathematical structure and can be seen as a search for regularities. When we recognize these arrangements we have an emotional reaction that is deeply rooted in our instincts and development. I also believe in color psychology in relation to people’s emotions and temperament. I (use) colors that I believe have positive effects and strive to create works that are aesthetically pleasing to the eye.”

Sarah Teasdale was born in Vancouver, B.C. She received
her B.F.A. from the University of Washington and began exhibiting her work in 2001 when she received 1st place at the Jacob Lawrence Gallery 2001 juried exhibition with a painting entitled “Sea Dream.”

Sarah’s subject matter has varied greatly and has included her dreams, the Victorian Era, Medieval Castles and more recently patterns and technology. Previously, her work was more on the representational side and she has enjoyed making the transition into creating abstract decorative work. Recently Sarah has completed a series of colorful geometric, pattern-based paintings. Each painting is multi-layered and is made with acrylic paint, mica pigments and spray paint. The overall aesthetic is a blend of digital, modern and ancient.
