This catalog was published on the occasion of Sarah Thibault's solo exhibition at Dreamsong, July 9 - August 20, 2022. The publication includes full color images of the works in the exhibition, photographs of the artist painting them en plein air in Iceland by Anna Katrine Thuesen, an essay by Gregory Smith and excerpts from the transcript of a conversation between Sarah Thibault and writer Kathryn Savage.
The ethereal paintings in Sarah Thibault’s exhibition "Iceland Diaries" were painted en plein air during a residency in northern Iceland. With an alluvial palette of earth tones and the radiant silvers and pinks of Iceland’s midnight sun, the artist’s stark, intimately scaled canvasses of the fjords and peaks surrounding the fishing village of Skagaströnd evoke contemplation and isolation. Though Thibault’s paintings are adroit exercises in painterly practice and paeans to an unforgettable landscape, they are also intensely personal. Grieving the recent and unexpected death of her father, the artist tested the limits of her endurance in Iceland’s vast intemperate wilderness.
