Sarah Shaw: Animus

Sarah Shaw's paintings hover in a place between figuration and non-figuration which allows the viewer the space to impose their own interpretation. Symbolic images are explored in the painterly dialogue to speak of some of the conditions of being human and also of the concept of living through time.

"Shaw's paintings sneak right up to the classical formulas of beauty and composition, and then quickly back away again leaving the viewer wanting. She dangles completion in front of the onlooker like an unreachable carrot. While this palpable manipulation is at times uncomfortable, its reflection in contemporary life is equally so. The works evokes the emotions of incompleteness and wanting that can riddle this over-promised and unfulfilled 3rd millennium reality." (Seth Orion Schwaiger MFA, GSA)

Sarah graduated from Falmouth College of Art in 2001 with a first class honours degree in Fine Art. Her work has been purchased by private collectors in the UK and abroad. She works from her studio in Brighton. Sarah is the first prize winner at British Women Artists Competition (2017) and the winner of the University of Chichester's Fine Art award for the South of England (2016).
