Since Sarquiz began painting in 1992, Sarquiz has always been drawn to the elements of abstraction. "I am primarily concerned with the exploration of color: the layering, the intricacies, the transparencies, and the luminosities that are subtly revealed. Within this exploration, I am drawn to the possibilities of infinite landscape and the structures and plasticity that the colors can create."
Sarquiz received her B.F.A from Brooklyn College, CUNY and is the recent recipient of a Fellowship Award from the Vermont Studio Center. She currently teaches art in a New York City public school in Brooklyn.
