You know when you go to a gallery, and you see a large, beautiful, eye-catching piece of work with an even more large, beautiful, and eye-catching price tag, and you look back and forth, spellbound between the two, and you think, that’s beautiful, but I could do that no problem? Welcome to the world of Sarah Splitler.

Back in 2004, Splitler’s works seemed to be street-art and graphic-inspired splatters of oil on canvas, and similarly distinguished sketches. In 2005, harsher edges, reminiscent of torn or scissor-cut paper made their first appearance, and her colour choices got a pastel tone-down. 2006 brought dripping paint into the foreground, but otherwise little change was made to her style. The trend continued in 2007, 2008, and 2009.

Her paintings are, indeed, large, beautiful, and eye-catching. However, they are also most definitely the level of artwork that could be created by any average kindergartner given a couple of pots of ink and paint and some canvas. If you ask me, unimpressive. What’s more is that there is a ringing monotony to her body of work. Since 2004, her style has barely changed. Five years later, this girl is still creating and exhibitioning some of the most simple, repetitive art I’ve seen.

There is something to be said for colour combination, knowing when to stop splattering the medium (her work is nothing if not underwhelming), and consistency. But as far as Splitler goes, I think that’s all there is to be said, unfortunately.
