Sarah Gottesdiener sent me a few images of her work, including some from her series of 20 portraits of Yoko Ono, and a pic of her pitbull. How could I not be smitten? I love how Sarah has captured Yoko Ono. There is a roughness to her work that somehow translates the subject into a tangible softness. Whatever that means, did I just type that out loud? Jeez. Ten hour work days do not bode well. Well, I do think that Yoko has always had this ethereal softness about her and Sarah captures that well. Anyhoo, Sarah has illustrated for peeps like The Ace Hotel, Uniqlo and Portland Institute of Contemporary Art. She'll have a show up at Stumptown in PDX in February. Watch this lady...they'll be much more from her no doubt.
