Sarah Louise Baker BA(Hons)
Sarah studied at Winchester School of Art ,The University of Southampton, as a mature student from 2009-2012 and is currently studying for a Fine Art Masters Degree at Arts University Bournemouth.
“The development of my work has taken me on a journey to the invisible, the unseen and the unknown. I am interested in highlighting these subject areas bringing them to light through visual art.
Past works have discussed feelings, atmospheres, hidden issues and the unknown properties and possibilities of space. My current practice incorporates a playful exploration of the banal such as scribble and a humorous investigation into rhythmic drawing to extremes with multiple implements simultaneously and uses it as a transformative vehicle to express the unseen and reveal hidden depths in the work in relation to spent labour and boredom.
In contrast to art traditions, my practice which incorporates drawing, print making and paper cuts and sculpture, embraces the imperfections and irregularities of the work such as the incomplete line, resulting in a degree of Optical Illusion. This is apparent in Space Pods (2012) in heat formed and distorted Moire Pattern and in Control (2020) with ordered imperfect overprinting of scribbled lines reminiscent of Spirograph's".
