The revelation of what was to become Sarah Anne DiNardo’s unexpected and amazing art came to her at an early age, when the feeling of handling and touching objects is very strong and can exert an intense attraction on people. A Massachusetts-based artist, she confesses that she was particularly drawn by the feeling of touch offered by tape – yes, that is the material she works with – and she states that she “fell in love with the tactile feeling of tape when she was three years old”.
In fact, Sarah DiNardo may be right when she says that she finds beauty in the trivial and expects to be able to convey it to others. And we have to admit that her fascinating artworks are an invitation for us to touch them, thus sharing her own love for the tactile feeling, and to let ourselves get involved in the magic she does with tape.
