Sadie Rebecca Starnes

Sadie Rebecca Starnes has eclectic interests. A Brooklyn-based writer and artist, she covers experimental music, art, and film for places like The New York Times and Artforum; argues visas for foreign artists; and has held numerous solo exhibitions in both New York and her former home of Tokyo. She mostly paints in oil, but sometimes works in installation and film, and once converted a Geiger counter into a musical instrument. Starnes is currently spearheading a diversity of projects, including a publication by Chris Marker, a film about tsunami pianos, and a fictional memoir. She made a New Year’s resolution to further diversify her work, so she recently reviewed an album of Persian pearl-diving music and interviewed David Duchovny. She was born and raised in North Carolina.
