Sarah Charlesworth Leaves Magic Images, Beloved Garden

The news of Sarah Charlesworth’s sudden death sent me back to October last year, when I visited the artist in her 19th-century house in Falls Village, Connecticut.

I asked if I might come by after seeing the magical images of her “Available Light” show at New York’s Susan Inglett Gallery. Set against a blue, white or black background, ordinary objects seemed to levitate, thanks to reflections, refractions and masterful camerawork.
