Ep.14 BEAUTIFULLY GROTESQUE - Sara Birns and her surrealist oil paintings
Show Notes

Sara Birns, plainly put, oil paints figures that make the viewer uncomfortable. Her figures are often an exaggerated versions of reality with the ugly sides of humans and animals alike. Yet, there is something so refreshingly human about being exposed to and confronting these normally over-looked sides of life in such a beautiful, detailed oil painting. Sara  talks her past gallery shows that span from online to Italy, her mentors, the paranormal, John C. Lilly, the importance of surrounding yourself with what you love, and the next steps in her career.
