Episode 2 of Five Questions with The Repressions is on Youtube now! Sage is a wonderful artist and illustrator ~ hear her answers to our silly questions and see a few of her paintings at the end of the video.
Sage Cotignola is an artist that The Repressions greatly admire, who creates lush storytelling and emotionally evocative work in a signature style. The Repressions were so glad to attend her exhibition at Greenpoint Gallery in Brooklyn in February 2020 and get the chance for an interview. A few paintings are shown at the end of this video, but do visit her website for the full gallery~ it is a visual feast! Find and follow her!
Sage usually paints in gouache on watercolor paper or on wood. She revels in the over-the-top and the unusual. She’s inspired by mythology, folktales, Medieval painting, Japanese woodblock prints, and the more surprising aspects of everyday life.
