Sarah jack

Sarah’s aim is to portray the reality of working life in the mills and fishing villages of nineteenth century Britain. Her paintings are at once intriguing and compelling, a new and exciting way to bring the past to life. Her current works come from years of experimenting with texture. Incorporating recycled materials Sarah creates a foundation by layering overlapping fragments of torn shapes and edges of paper and card, scrim, wire and sacking onto misshapen pieces of board. Pigment is applied, then wiped or sanded away to expose interesting lines and markings and allowing the buildings to be revealed.  Read More >>
