Sarah Cox – sjcoxart
I like to contrast elements of tight, structured paint work with loose, atmospheric washes and gestural marks. Colour and texture are both dominant elements in my paintings. Expect to see a mixture of sweeping brush strokes, palette knife work, dripping, scratched back surfaces and washy pools of paint. Sights, sounds and smells in the landscape connect to our memories. Hedgerows filled with blackberries, the smell of cut grass, fresh rain on dry earth and the swishing and swaying of crops in the wind all transport me back to my childhood. Like the patina of time, my work is multi-layered and built up and scraped back over time. Base layers are often revealed in part and this adds both depth and textural variety to my outcomes. Past experiences resonate with the present.
