SARAH CAIN: MUSIC BOOK
ADAA: THE ART SHOW 2022
3 - 6 NOVEMBER
Sarah Cain's Music Book (2008-2021) is comprised of a series of colorful abstractions painted directly over a collection of vintage sheet music. The original book of music was found in Switzerland and Cain’s paintings within collide with and respond to the previous owner’s handwritten notes. Music Book is an extension of Cain’s works on paper that balance her installation and large-scale painting practice: these works are intimate meditations; intricate and small-scale. Sarah Cain has been painting Music Book since 2008 and has carried it through three studios.
“It is this journal of time that you can open up, start, close, put away, like a diary.”
