Sarah Spackman: Specific beauty

Sarah Spackman's work is distinguished by a strength of drawing, together with a delicate and subtle use of colour. Sarah has become particularly well known for her still-life paintings. She works in a quiet considered way applying the principle that good drawing is the basis of good painting. Sarah uses colour to enhance the organisation and definition of observed form. Sarah considers the setting up of a still life a crucial part of the process: focusing on the objects themselves, everyday objects that are often looked at but not seen, how they relate to each other and the space in which they sit. When painting Sarah pursues the development of these relationships through constantly looking, contemplating, redrawing and colour adjusting.

Sarah studied at Byam Shaw School of Art and Camberwell School of Art in 1970s and 80s and is now internationally recognised for her work. She won the Winsor and Newton Young Artists Award at the Royal Institute of Oil Painters exhibition is a member of the Royal Society of British Artists. She is the winner of the Gordon Hulson Memorial Prize.

Sarah says: I am often inspired by the specific beauty of an organic form be it a nasturtium picked from the allotment or a particularly handsome fig at the market. My way of expressing my response to these objects is through drawing and painting.

Sarah's work will be shown with still life glass maestro Elliot Walker, associated with the London Glassblowing Studios.

Elliot is one of a handful of glassblowers in the world who focus solely on figurative sculpture. Sculpting in molten glass is known as the Messello technique, and working this way requires extreme dexterity, speed and precise temperature control. He chooses to sculpt in glass mainly for the material's immediacy and transparency and for the intensity of the sculpting experience.
