In her practice Sarah adopts a multi-media approach to making, which considers the medium of painting as an interdisciplinary investigation. She explores what it is that defines an art object both in relation to its fabrication as well as it’s situational context. In her most recent artwork, she uses plaster to cast individual panels that resemble paintings, investigating how the use of a particular material ‘plaster’ can change our understanding of an artwork.
