Artist's talk at 3:20

Sarah creates portrait and self-portrait drawings and art works on paper primarily using graphite pencil. These drawings are meticulously-rendered illustrative works that use the figure situated into dramatic poses; the surrounding space creates a narrative for the figure by using a combination of symbolic elements and props as well as flattened or altered depth of space to create a psychologically-charged atmosphere. Her recent artwork also explores the sense of fear and vulnerability shaped by an increasing loss of privacy as we move towards a more digitally-connected world.
