Explosion, Comet, and Call Me Maybe are some titles of Sara Conde's artworks that explore human and earthly landscapes of our time. Conde uses psychedelic colors from the 60s in her paintings and wood block prints to transform us to another time and dimension all of her own.
She builds up surfaces for her oblivious dreamscapes that confuse the eye and take us on her journey to a past that dips into the future. A mountain will turn into a cloud surrounded by a metal fence, that changes into lines that look like cliffs near a footprint that could be a cell.
Conde makes us focus in on her petri dish with fluorecsent or metalic colors -- alerting us to certain forms and drawings we need to pay attention to. Multiple layers draw us in and out of her world that is made up of many layers.
