Sara Jiminez

Another artist who's work I really enjoyed from the show, Next Great Artist was Sara Jimenez. She was in the final of the show, but unfortunately came in last. I really enjoyed her drawings, they are very free and relaxed.

Artists Statment

'My work begins with the personal and extends to my surroundings. The work I create is not medium specific or limited by material. The project dictates the form that the pieces take, whether it be performance, drawing, painting, installation, video, or a combination. Most of my work is through the lens of psychological portraiture. I see the body as a vessel for expressing the unconscious. My work began as primarily self-referential, based on the feminist theory that the personal is political. I still hold on to this foundation. However, I have become more interested in my narrative and body in relation to others, from strangers to family members. I am interested in creating poetic and metaphorical form around mundane, common, day to day relationships between the self and others, and overlapping the social protocol of private and public gestures.'
