GIFT idea for anyone who wants to be reminded that there’s still much to love about Staten Island:
Presented loosely in chronological order, spanning the mid-1980’s through 2017, the primary theme is universality of the local.
This collection is a celebration and homage to the concept of home and the commonplace. Additional topics are explored: Conservation, natural sciences, artists and runners
“When Sarah came to the Rose Center to photograph me, it was full of planets and all kinds of space things; I like the way she chose to leave all of them out of my portrait.”
— Neil deGrasse Tyson
“She’s disciplined but generous. Beauty often gets into the picture. Sentimentality, never. Naturally, it helps to have the right skill set. Yuster can depict the dramatic interaction of wind and light inside a deceptively simple situation, like a meadow ringed with autumn trees”
— Michael Fressola – arts reviewer
“Sarah Yuster is one of the first professional artists of the modern running moment …her painting of ultra-marathoner Lou Rodriguez is a technically daring image in dark oils of running at it’s least glamorous and most demanding.”
— Runner’s World/Roger Robinson -runner, scholar, and author
