    Thought Patterns At Santa Rosa City Council Chambers

    Thanks to all who came out last week to the opening reception for "Thought Patterns." For anyone who missed it you can check it out until November 17th. After that, Work will be moving to the Mayors office!

    Sarah Ammons' paintings and drawings express the daily psychological reality that is the human struggle. She uses pattern to represent a sense of personal history in memory and as a representation of the patterns we develop in our relationships, behaviors, and interactions. Inspired by Lacan's psycholanalytic theory and the expressive figurative work of Egon Shiele and Paula Rego, Sarah uses color, line, and organic hand-drawn patterns to investigate relational dynamics and the role of personal history.
