"Untitled"
Sarah Welsh and Tim Welsh

  • Project Space 613 Allen Street Austin, TX, 78702 United States (map)

The phrase “labor of love” comes to mind when anticipating the unveiling of Sarah Welch’s show. Welch tackles the importance of labor, sacrifice and submission within relationships through sculptural text and carpet installation. She questions what it means to “take the bad with the good”, offer unconditional forgiveness and provide unending strength.

The color palette of the carpet, reminiscent of muscle and skin, lends itself to the vulnerable state relationships often lead us to. Under the guidance of her father, a carpenter who specializes in custom commercial floor installation, Welch “fleshes” out her conceptualization of what we really give of ourselves to those we are most intimate with.
