Sarah Whiteley


Sarah is a landscape artist, painting on antique and recycled domestic fabric. Sarah reimagines the painting as an object by using materials with their own history and context. Her work explores the juxtaposition of the domestic and the natural world. After graduating from a Fine Art Degree at Bath in 2000, Sarah was a freelance editorial photographer. Having traveled through South America and Asia, she produced films exploring journeys and the sublime. This work was exhibited internationally in a retrospective of British video art entitled All for Show. Having trained at Goldsmiths College, she taught in a number of schools eventually to become Head of Art at Eastbourne College. In 2011, she was invited to exhibit a retrospective of her work at Bedford School. Sarah’s recent paintings arise from our shared relationship with woods and forests throughout the year, watching the different seasons play out in colour and light. These landscapes expose themselves; they bring together different narratives through the fabric and seductive painted surface which reveal and conceal different details. Although incredibly personal, these paintings allude to our shared experience of forests and depict the rhythm of life over time.
