Sarah Steinberg's works on paper begin as a homage to the landscape of her childhood home in Canada. Steinberg recreates forests and fields from memory with rich earth tones only found in the northern landscapes. She is inspired by the geometric works of minimalist painter John McLaughlin and his use of the rectangle, and goes on to use that element in her landscape to give a sense of new depth. Dark tones in and around the rectangles symbolize the reality of life’s progression to death by interrupting the romanticized landscape, and transforming the forests and fields into pathways to the “other side.”
