just between us is a body of work by local artist sarah goetz which explores the human ability to form connections – between each other, between ideas, between spaces. Within the abstract spaces of color in her works, sarah hides momentary truths, fragments of experiences and condensed epiphanies. just between us explores these ideas through multiple different media: abstract watercolor paintings, ink on projected 16mm film, live personal engagement, and enveloping paper installation. All are journeying toward the same goal: to acknowledge our universal need to connect and our capacity to do so despite differences in language, time, and space.
sarah goetz is a Durham artist who works primarily in installation, moving image, and painting, trying to make tangible the ephemeral connections between people, ideas, and aesthetics. sarah looks for the visually delicious and the conceptually poetic and seeks to create intense immersive experiences. She received her undergraduate degree in making/ thinking/ looking/ feeling/ talking about the visual in space & time from Duke University, where in 2011 she won the Louis Sudler Prize in the Creative and Performing Arts, the Julia Harper Day award in Documentary Studies, the Sue & Lee Noel Prize in Visual Arts, Distinction in Arts of the Moving Image, and Highest Distinction in Visual & Media Studies.
