Brandis Sarich

I create joyful and easily identifiable paintings of the intangible nature of relationships and love. Astropup is my project in which I am employing the artistic vehicle of the dog portrait to reflect a cultural obsession and as an homage to the animals I love. The art utilizes black lines and colorful, expressive brushstrokes to suggest the transcendent nature of animals interacting within the boundaries of human creation. In making my art, I seek to understand what dogs mean to us, our relationship with them, and the importance of their presence in our lives.
