A bit about her current work....
Sarah’s work delves into human psychology, the bonds that tie, the subtlety of relationships and memories created along the way.
In her still life work she paints motifs; vessels, fabrics, objects (often gifts or inherited treasures), gathered flowers or fallen flora to conjure memories of joy, for the little things, connections and memories. Her work reminding us to retain the rituals in our day that bring some certainty and provide a kind of mediation, a moment to stand still.
Light and shadow play a role too, helping to express, in part, inevitable opposites, these contradictions in us all, the qualities that make us human.
In Sarah’s portrait and landscape work she continues this theme; subtly bringing together moments of shared experience; the joy of a treasured holiday, a memory of a person or place. Her hope; to create a snapshot; preserving the essence of a person, a time, a special childhood moment, a landscape or built environment we can relate to.
“These moments and the subsequent memories they create, give us strength, grounding and community, a place that feels ours, in this chaotic world.
We are all connected, by where we live, the places we visit, our shared upbringing or experiences, rituals and traditions. No matter how different, they are a part of who we become and part of the shared experience of being human.”
