Sarah Shaw

My work hovers in a place between figuration/non-figuration which allows the viewer the space to impose their own interpretation. It comes from a very quiet place, almost a place of meditation, where metaphorical or symbolic images/barriers/passages 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. My process seems to always revolve around the building up and stripping down of imagery, exploring different painterly languages then reducing down to the lowest denominator where an edgy quietness falls. They are not whole images, but snatches of images, sounds and thoughts, forming into coherence briefly like a painterly slideshow of memory.


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.
