Galloping Rhapsody showcases a body of work, which epitomizes the untamed spirit of liberation, encapsulating a moment of boundless energy and raw freedom. Gambin unveils a collection of 20 soulful paintings. Viewers will be greeted by the majestic sight of a horse galloping out of the frame, transcending the confines of two-dimensional art into the vibrant realm of three-dimensional life.  
The horse, portrayed in full motion, exudes a sense of wild abandon as it charges forward with unrestrained vigor. Every brushstroke and contrast in color contributes to the dynamic portrayal of movement and vitality, with the horse’s muscles tensed and its hooves kicking up clumps of earth in a symphony of motion.

Galloping Rhapsody becomes a portal through which viewers are invited to immerse themselves in. The exhilaration of witnessing a spirited creature break free from the confines of its painted existence will mesmerize.  Galloping Rhapsody serves as a powerful testament to the transformative power of artistic expression, inviting all to experience the unbridled joy of liberation and the timeless allure of the equine spirit.

About the artist: For Sarah Chérif Gambin, every canvas is a portal to a realm of emotion and creativity. Born in Paris, France, and now an emerging artist based in San Francisco, Sarah’s fascination for composition and forms began early, nurtured by a family of art enthusiasts. 

Since 2005, San Francisco’s eclectic spirit and ever-changing hues have fueled her creative expression.  Sarah’s art celebrates the essence of the horse, symbolizing freedom, grace, and strength. Through her deliberate abstraction and bold use of color, she captures the majestic movement and character of these noble creatures. Her paintings, whether depicting the horse or the human form, pulsate with life and creativity, inviting viewers to explore the intersection of movement and natural beauty.  

In Sarah’s work, muscle tensions and structures are exposed, creating a sculptural dynamism that speaks to her obsession with what lies beneath the surface. Each brushstroke tells a story, reflecting her intense curiosity about the cycle of life and death. 
As she breaks barriers daily, Sarah invites you to join her on an artistic journey of exploration.
