Still Listening for your Voice

Born in Coventry in 1962, Sarah settled in Carmarthenshire where she gained a BA in Fine Art followed by an MA with Distinction. She teaches fine art at Carmarthen School of Art whilst continuing to paint and exhibit, and is represented by several galleries in Wales and England. She won the Fishguard Arts Society Open Joint Prizewinner in 2018 and the Oriel Bevan Jones Highly Commended in spring 2019.
Her latest body of work is based around abstraction with a particular focus on colour, form and surface. One of her major influences is the Welsh painter Roger Cecil, apparent in her adherence to a square format and attention to the finished surfaces of her paintings, which often give a burnished effect. These surfaces also show signs of manipulation with overpainting of thin glazes to achieve subtle depth and coherence and she will rework paintings again and again, partly from economy and partly from a strict discipline of self-editing. Her paintings often have a narrative thread, with titles like Primavera and Aestas: she also has a secret love of listening to jazz while she works. The latest grouping of paintings in the ‘veils’ series relate to the loss of her mother in 2014 and also give the title of the show.
