Michael Warren Contemporary (MWC) is pleased to present “The Line to Follow” with artwork by Sara Ransford.

The unique qualities of paper clay allow Ransford to explore disparate relationships by incorporating torn and fragile components ultimately representing the monumentality of even the most intimate, complex spaces. “I explore the natural world in my sculptural forms. I am fascinated by the complexity in nature, and how that complexity reflects itself in our own world. The forces of erosion, the aspect of time, traces of experiences recorded over eons, only to be changed in a single moment can create such vulnerability and duplicity in things we do not anticipate,” says Ransford.

Ransford lives and works in Aspen, Colorado. Sara Ransford received her BFA from CU Boulder (1984), where she studied under Betty Woodman and Anne Currier. She has been an artist in residence at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village, CO and has also taught workshops there and across Colorado. In 2001 she attended Alfred University, and in 2011 was awarded The Red Brick 2011 Artist Tribute from red Brick Center for the Arts. She shown throughout the region at art centers, galleries and museums including the Aspen Art Museum, Arvada Center for the Arts, Harvey Meadows Gallery, Michael Warren Contemporary, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, San Angelo Center for the Arts,  Western Colorado Center for the Arts, Las Cruces Museum of Art, Evelyn Siegel Gallery, and the Foothills Art Center.
