Sara paints with very gestural mark making, and this painting is part of her new body of work which interprets the fascinating interactions and relationships between nature in the landscape, both in the air and on the ground. This work is framed and glazed.
Rocks have emerged as metaphors for defining and questioning assumptions about permanence, resistance and protection. At times painted over ‘found’ surfaces or airmail letters, Sara works with synergies between surface and subject. She deploys mark-making and gestures to reinterpret the swarming motion of flocks of airborne creatures, at times juxtaposed with representations of permanence.
