Artist – Sarah Jack

Incorporating recycled materials, Sarah Jack constructs a foundation by layering overlapping fragments of torn shapes, edges of paper and card, scrim, wire and sacking onto misshapen pieces of board. With the structure of the composition built up, pigment is applied then wiped or sanded away to expose interesting markings. Each piece almost resembling an old relic which is fraying at the edges. Sarah’s fascination lies in capturing our emotional and physical history through deep collage elements, abstract shapes and newspaper clippings of real life tragedies. She aims to combine both the harsh reality with the hope and resilience of life working in the 1800’s in our mills, workhouses, farms and fishing villages.
