Sarah Heinemann is a New York City-based artist whose paintings, drawings, and site-specific installations celebrate the potential of modernist abstraction through process, play, and improvisation. Heinemann draws from ideas rooted in geometric minimalism, performance, labor politics, spatial experience and architecture. Using vibrant color juxtapositions, geometric forms, and casual gestures the work considers the expression of subjectivity within the objective framework of everyday experience and the strange intangibility of abstraction.
Originally from Chicago, she attended Smith College, holds a BFA in painting from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA from Hunter College. Solo exhibitions include SARDINE Gallery in Bushwick and The Knockdown Center in Maspeth, Queens. Selected group exhibitions and fairs include Galeria Lume, SP-Arte, and ArtSampa OCA in Sao Paulo Brazil, Tiger Strikes Asteroid LA, The Whitney Houston Biennial, The RE:Institute in Millerton NY, a co-curated show of Hunter MFA students at Hauser and Wirth Gallery. She participated in the Spring 2023 Sustainable Care in the Arts Forum- Denniston Hill Residency. Sarah has worked for the studio of Sol LeWitt since 2000, realizing LeWitt wall drawings for museums, galleries, and private collections.
