Through a multimedia practice that demands vulnerability of both the artist and viewer, Sara Jimenez investigates the process of identity formation: how we claim ourselves in an impermanent world. Jimenez is interested in the way complex forces manifest themselves physically, whether in the properties of materials like salt or nylon, or in the artist’s own body. During her time in the Winter Workspace, Jimenez continued her sculptural and printerly explorations into salt crystals as they grow and leave traces.  

Jimenez also maintains a lively collaborative practice in the groups Redell & Jimenez and Tatlo. Independently and as a collaborator, Jimenez has shown and performed throughout the United States, including—in New York City—at El Museo Bienal, Rush Arts Gallery and the Affordable Art Fair. She will be presenting a solo exhibition at the Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo, Philippines. She was a finalist on Bravo’s Work of Art: The Next Great Artist in 2011. She holds an MFA from Parsons the New School for Design and a BA in Semiotics and Communication Theory from the University of Toronto.
