Eiermann's 'A Storm Is Coming' is a masterful depiction of the impending tumult as seen through the eyes of an artist. Oil on canvas serves as a traditional medium, yet Eiermann's application is anything but conventional. The 14 x 18-inch canvas bursts with a tumultuous blend of colors, where the azure of a clear sky meets the menacing grays and reds of a brewing storm. The textured strokes and the abstract forms seem to capture the charged atmosphere before a tempest, leaving viewers in a state of anticipation. This piece is emblematic of the chaos preceding change, rendered with a raw intensity that Eiermann manages to control and harness into a cohesive visual narrative.

In 'Northern Lights,' we witness a divergence from the traditional as Eiermann employs mixed media on an unprimed 48 x 48-inch canvas. This choice of surface and scale is a statement in itself, challenging the viewer to expand their perception. The sweeping blues and greens swirl across the canvas, mimicking the ethereal dance of the aurora borealis. The use of mixed media adds depth and a tactile quality that invites touch. This piece is less about the suddenness of a moment, as seen in 'A Storm Is Coming,' and more about the lingering, pervasive awe that nature can instill in us.

'Brain Fog' is an introspective piece, smaller in scale at 11 x 14 inches but significant in its impact. The use of oil on canvas here is subdued, with a palette that veers towards cooler tones interspersed with hints of warm color, reflecting the confusion and disorientation the title suggests. The soft blending and overlay of colors convey a sense of detachment and the struggle to find clarity. Eiermann’s work here is deeply personal, allowing the viewer to peer through the haze of the artist's mind, empathizing with the universal feeling of being lost in one's thoughts.

Sarah Eiermann's 2023 collection is a vibrant testament to the power of abstract art to evoke emotion and provoke thought. From the foreboding of 'A Storm Is Coming' to the ethereal 'Northern Lights,' and the introspective 'Brain Fog,' Eiermann's works are a journey through the complexities of nature and the human psyche. Her bold use of color, innovative techniques, and varied canvases showcase a versatility and depth that mark her as a significant voice in contemporary art. Each painting stands as a solitary beacon of her vision, yet together, they form a cohesive narrative of the stirring beauty inherent in abstraction.
