Bluegrass

Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Nicole Phillips began collaging with used security envelopes she came across while working at an office job. Using the decorative interior patterns previously used to hide the contents of a letter, she created elaborate scenes with flora-inspired imagery.

Inspired by lush fields of grass blowing with a soft breeze, this refreshing artwork is brimming with eye-catching patterns and cool blue and grey palettes. Each blade of grass is highlighted with a different flowing design, lending a contemporary touch to natural style. Made in Brooklyn. Printed and framed in Oregon.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

She has participated in several artist residencies including a year-long stint at the Lower East Side Printshop where she continues to teach. Sarah exhibits widely in Canada and the US and is a recipient of a Brooklyn Arts Council grant.

Sarah creates her beautiful collages by repurposing the decorative insides of security envelopes, originally meant to protect important documents. Do you love this clever use of reclaimed material?

Just love the fluidity of the blue in her work. The eye can flow over the surface without disturbance. This piece has energy but gives the viewer a great feeling of harmony.
