Biography

Sara Conca is a contemporary abstract artist of Native American and French- Italian
descent. She has sold her works to many collectors in Europe, Asia, and the United
States. Her paintings can be found in private chateaus and hotel lobbies in France, as well
as in many exclusive celebrity homes and museums.
By the age of 17, Sara was living and working in Paris. A life changing experience that
reinforced her need for movement, energy and art. While in Paris, Sara studied sculpture
at Ateliers D’Art De St Maur Des Fosses, and further continued her education in South
Florida as an assistant of the critically lauded artist Purvis Young.
Sara Conca has spent her last 18 years in Manhattan, Living solely off her painting sales,
Extensive international travels, and the influence of New York City has given her an
insightful appreciation for her ever- changing environments and settings, as well as
heavily influencing her.
Sara Conca has returned to her roots in Florida, which has inspired her to create a fresh
new aquatic mystical series involving natural mixed media such as raw silver dust and
18k gold leafing, raw pigments colors, mica flakes and natural crystals.
“My work is intended to instantaneously immerse the viewer into the visual and
emotional energies that I have devoted to each piece. Depending on one's ability and
willingness to be guided by the senses, these paintings can lead one away from the
mind and into an alternate and self-made reality filled with color and feeling. My new
series features gold. I love working with this color because it changes in the light and I
can manipulate the textures and layering; thus affording each piece movement and
energy from the reflecting and refracting light.” ~ Sara Conca
