Karlijn Sas is a visual artist that creates semi abstract paintings through an intuitively driven process that emphasises the individual's perception of place. She uses colours that the human visual system adjusts when there are changes in illumination, causing every individual to see the colours in her artwork slightly differently.
The individual perception of her art gets distorted by her use of colour, texture and the reflectiveness of materials used. Karlijn’s arts practice concentrates primarily on painting in acrylic and gold leaf on board canvases made by her partner at her studio. Her work lends towards abstract landscape and figurative genres.
I acknowledge the Gadubanud as the traditional owners of the country on which I am living and working – and I recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. I pay my respects to their elders past, present and emerging.
