Sept. 5th - 29th, 2013
Great Distances is an exhibition of recent works by Sarah Coyne. Coyne graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2003 with a BFA in Illustration. She lives and works in Jamaica Plain where she is the owner of Egg-A-Go-Go, a small company offering unique stationery and apparel. Great Distances is Sarah Coyne’s first solo show.
The exhibition brings together paintings that embody the artist’s ongoing interest in animal migration. Coyne is fascinated by the collective consciousness of groups of animals moving together, often navigating routes traveled by their ancestors.
Coyne's watercolor paintings offer varying perspectives, capturing the frenetic energy of a tight pack of galloping gazelles or the elongated paths of caribou pacing methodically across a snowy landscape. Some focus on smaller numbers that brave vast journeys in loyal pairs, while others enumerate immense herds. From delicate monarch butterflies to colossal humpback whales, so many are compelled to travel so far for their very survival.
Each work's title highlights an aspect of the journeys taken.
