Pop Goes the Art: Sarah Boyts Yoder

30 Aug

If you’ve been reading Artsy Forager for a while, you’ve probably noticed that I have a bit of a weakness for saturated color mixed with bold graphics.  I don’t know what it is about this combo, but I am completely unable to resist.  The colorful abstract collages of Charleston, SC artist Sarah Boyts Yoder had me at hot pink.

I am completely enchanged with those heavy black lines reminiscent of a child’s coloring book.. Often the lines are left partially “colored-in”, a playful nod to their childlike quality.

And I love the way Boyts Yoder seems to take two disparate compositions and layers one over the other, creating a game of visual “peek-a-boo”.  I want to peel back each layer to see what’s hiding underneath!
