    friendship is Sarah Braman's first cast, editioned artwork, and it presents her hallmark juxtaposition of form and material. Braman's works combine parts scavenged from vehicles, old buildings, or furniture with translucent volumes of color and light to construct her precariously balanced sculptures. In their formal construction, they relate to the legacies of minimalism and color field painting, yet suggest themes of home, family, and nature. In creating ever-shifting points of view, Braman asks the viewer to take an active part in creating meaning.
