Sara Conca, is a contemporary abstract artist of French- Italian descent. She has sold her works to many collectors in Europe, Asia, and the United States. Her paintings can be found in private chateaus and hotel lobbies in France, as well as in many exclusive celebrity homes and museums.
By the age of 17, Sara was living and working in Paris, a life changing experience that reinforced her need for movement, energy and art. While in Paris, Sara studied sculpture at Ateliers D’Art De St Maur Des Fosses and further continued her education in South Florida as an assistant to the critically lauded artist Purvis Young.
Sara Conca has spent her last 18 years in Manhattan living solely off her painting sales. Extensive international travels and the influence of New York City have heavily influenced her, having given her an insightful appreciation for her ever- changing environments and settings.
Sara Conca has returned to her roots in Florida which has inspired her to create a fresh new aquatic mystical series. It involves natural mixed media such as raw silver dust and 18k gold leafing, raw pigments colors, mica flakes and natural crystals.
“My work is intended to instantaneously immerse the viewer into the visual and emotional energies that I have devoted to each piece. Depending on one's ability and willingness to be guided by the senses, these paintings can lead one away from the mind and into an alternate and self-made reality filled with color and feeling. My new series features gold. I love working with this color because it changes in the light and I can manipulate the textures and layering; thus affording each piece movement and energy from the reflecting and refracting light.” ~ Sara Conca
