Sarah Thomas is an interdisciplinary artist, photographer, and curator based in the Midwest. She received her BFA from Bowling Green State University in 2013 and recieved her MFA in Photography from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2020. She has exhibited around the Midwest, worked on independent photography projects, and assisted in mural projects around the city of Toledo, working with Toledo Arts Corner, Toledo Arts Commission, and the Toledo Museum of Art. Recently, she co-curated and exhibited work for the show “Considering Permanence, Tell Me Where To Go” at 1301 Broadway, Cranbrook Gallery, downtown Detroit. Her work teeters between sinister and humorous, natural and artifice, seduction and repulsion as she analyzes current and future states of plastic waste. Acknowledging the capacity for human adaptability in the Anthropocene and critiquing absurdities of recycling in capitalistic culture, Thomas lures viewers with playful aesthetics and simultaneously demands their reflection on the dire consequences we face together.
