Saren Dobkins is a painter for discerning Art buyers who appreciate contemporary art that is intelligent, emotive and accessible while being technically proficient and beautiful.
During her painting career which spans nearly 30 years, Saren has been committed to exploring an oeuvre that explores human dilemmas, interactions and desires. She has traveled extensively all her life, having lived in Zambia, Scotland, Israel and Australia which has given her an open, curious and empathetic perspective that is reflected in her work. As a mother, this has provided her with a tenacity and patience to pursue her passion as well as create meaningful, tender and powerful imagery that evokes the bonds and tensions of this relationship. Saren has pursued many different avenues of study, from the Arts to Design, Multimedia, Social Studies and Permaculture. These varying avenues of thought and literature have fed into her content, lending her work a highly contemporary and intellectual framework into which she weaves a personal commentary. Her work can be interpreted from a narrative perspective that is expressive and philosophical.

It is during those moments of deep wondering, that we ask. The paradox is that even thought we look 'out there' it is "within' that the true intelligence or knowing is the most decisive if we are to reach peace and deep knowledge. The point of contact, our feeling connected seems to be what we most desire, it is so illusive.
