S A R A H F O A T
After graduating with a Fine Art degree from Bath Spa University College, I then ran my own art gallery for 10 years exhibiting and selling contemporary art and craft alongside my own work. Since returning to my artwork after becoming a mother, I am now pursuing my passion for abstract painting.
I have always been inspired by things that are generally overlooked, finding beauty in the everyday. More recently this has centred around a piece of graffiti that I regularly walk past on the school-run, with a particular fascination with the bold colours, texture and layers upon layers of previous graffiti tags.
In my work I use acrylics to explore textures and colours reminiscent of graffiti, with a continual process of applying and removing paint in order to reveal glimpses of previous layers. I enjoy experimenting with mark-making and investigating contrasts, not only with colour but also texture, tone, line and space. I hope in some way to capture my vision of the beautiful essence of graffiti in my paintings.
My work is regularly exhibited around the country in various galleries and at art fairs, and is currently on show in the Winter exhibition at Hatch Gallery Christchurch and at Chalk’s Gallery Lymington in their ‘End of the Rainbow’ exhibition.
