Sarah has been experimenting with black and white portraits over the past fourteen years. Fascination with faces, expressions, body and gesture has been a lifelong experience for her.
In her work Sarah captures expressions, feelings, moods and mental states.
In the past Sarah has never used images or photos of faces, most of her portraits are developed through improvisation. Sarah’s work is inspired by strong female characters, who are original and have a powerful presence.
Sarah’s large drawings, which she has named the Wirehead’s, have evolved from a long history of sketching.
Sarah calls it structured improvisation; a combination of uncontrolled and controlled chaos with some identifiable characteristics. They represent the energy of thinking and the subconscious mind in movement and in the moment.
