The Burden of Adoration

This Saturday is the opening of the wonderful Sarah Folkman's "The Burden of Adoration" solo show at Corey Helford Gallery out in Culver City, CA. The vibrancy of her pieces set against natural burl paneling makes for a stunning effect as seen with this beautiful "Vanity" oil painting above, with the imagery in this new body of work fueled by the crazy mindset and emotional experiences of someone who is in love... fueled by "the sensation of wanting to completely protect the one you adore while simultaneously feeling that you would murder them if they betrayed you." [I'm sure most of us can relate.]
