–I am currently working between photography and sculpture.

-Who Am I?⁠

I am Sara VanDerBeek a visual artist and instructor living and working in NYC. ⁠

-What Do I Do?⁠

I am currently working between photography and sculpture. Observation, transformation, and interchange are central to my practice. I see the images I am currently making as a continuum of creation, in which the female form with its long history as a contested site is transformed into a site of contemplation, discourse and reclamation. ⁠

-Why Photography?⁠

In its own shifting forms of existence – as a threshold to other planes and places of existence, as an increasingly shared language, and as an ever expanding archive of complicated objects – photography is the medium of our time.
