Art for Sara needs to engage, excite and challenge. Her painting is characterised by an upbeat joyousness emitted through colour, bold, abstract forms and repeating pattern. Process-led and experimental in approach, she works primarily with paper and mixed media, allowing pieces to evolve into 2D and 3D inventions. Her collage technique, layering discarded material from collaborative workshops and old paintings, embraces a radical deconstructing and reconstructing process. Each work then becomes a palimpsest of her own and others’ past experiences in the act of painting.
