(Ohio, 1989)


Sarah Gill is an American artist currently living and working in Oregon. She received a BFA from the University of Cincinnati and an MFA from the University of Arizona. As her work traverses multiple physical and emotional spaces, it also addresses a struggle to make lasting connections in new and sometimes unreceptive landscapes. Viewed as Chapters in a Book, These selections embody the photographer as an isolated persona, one whose uneasy communication with the surrounding environment brings about a potential for alienation. Through such a lens, the camera’s intimacy acts as a precursor to flattening and objectification, Silence and disconnect. Here, the relationship between camera and subject provides a reflection of the many ways we connect, or fail to connect, with our immediate environments, the natural world, and each other, in a technological society that can seem increasingly abstract and detached.
