Sarah Illenberger Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At the intersection of photography, art, and graphic design, Sarah Illenberger creates vivid imagesthat make stories come to life. The visual language of Sarah Illenberger is extremely effective at translating content, data, and ideas into vivid, often humorous images. Whether big or small, abstract or complex, the subjects and problems of our times are pointedly depicted by this renowned illustrator and designer in concise visual forms. The conceptual strength, descriptive intensity, and spatial finesse of her style make her work particularly attractive for international magazines that are looking for a catchy and entertaining way to illustrate their articles. Meticulously created with analog handicraft using simple materials and household items such as paper, food, textiles, and wood, Illenberger's richly detailed work opens up new perspectives on seemingly familiar, iconographically-charged forms and content. She expertly avoids imbuing her materials and subjects with artificial significance or forcing a meaning upon them. Instead, Illenberger's penetrating creative eye reveals their true essence--one that has usually remained hidden just under the surface from our fleeting and routine everyday glances. Sarah Illenberger is the first monograph of the Berlin-based artist's work. In addition to commissioned designs for international magazines and brands such as Vanity Fair, Time Magazine, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Wallpaper, and Nike, it also includes a selection of current personal projects.
