Sarah’s work is drawn from the vast wild space that surrounds her studio in the Yorkshire Dales – it is full of rhythm, line and form.
Walking this landscape is an integral part of her work and for the past 15 years her chosen material has been stone. In the last few years Sarah has had a number of international residencies, which have informed her work and deepened her interest in our environment. Her work is held in private collections both in the UK and abroad.
In 2016 Sarah was awarded an Arts Council grant to produce a new body of work exploring our deep-rooted connection to nature, using a variety of new materials in collaboration with a sound engineer and a light artist.
My work is a dialogue with the stone, leaving the moss, lichen and marks of nature and working to reveal the origin and beauty of the stone. My sculptures express a fascination for what is underneath, what is hidden and what can be revealed both in a literal sense but also in relation to the human spirit. So much of my work is about rhythm, that which I see and feel both inside and outside, it is life. Every landscape has its own latent poetry – the contours of the land and the plants reveal to you the geometry of its soul.
