Current Exhibition - Sarah Hopkins - recent work 2017

01/04/2017 to 22/04/2017

‘Urban landscape and heavy industry are commonly perceived as unsightly and ugly. My objective for thirty years as an artist and printmaker has been to challenge the ways in which these landscapes are perceived.

My new collection of work borrows from these same principles and explores the ways that farmed land and townscapes are connected. Natural landscapes are malleable; carved and cultivated, shaped and transformed, creating pattern and repetition that gesture to similar characteristics in urban landscape. Using hand-printed paper and a carefully-considered palate, I have assembled compositions that denote a familiar sense of place’.

Sarah has worked with a number of clients to create bespoke artwork for interior spaces, including a commission for John Lewis Stores, Cardiff to create an exclusive set of mono-type screenprints for their Espresso Bar. In 2012 her work was purchased by the Palace of Westminster for the Parliamentary Art Collection and is displayed at Portcullis House. Her work is also held at the National Library of Wales, Contemporary Arts Society of Wales and in many private collections.
