"My process aims to create an enticing, surface of repetitive, complex marks, that confuse the eye and trick the brain"
Working for ten years in theatre production and as an artist’s manager, in 2000 Sara Willett decided to pursue her passion for Fine Art. Graduating from Camberwell College of Art in 2002 and again for her MA in 2011, Willett has been working as a professional artist ever since.
Elevating the everyday
Willett is fascinated by the potential of art to raise the status of the humble and everyday object. She finds inspiration in a myriad of different sources; from Chinese landscape painting to Flemish Primitivism and from macro/micro biology to domestic craftwork. While her primary medium is painting, Willett seeks to engage the viewer in an immersive and sensory environment through large scale installations that enhance and play off her paintings.Leggere di più
An exploration of surface
Willett’s artistic process is constantly evolving, she tests and pushes the limits of the medium, the result is often unpredictable. The multi-layered, fractured surfaces of her paintings explore notions of weight, space, temporality, rhythm, metamorphosis and illusion.
Residencies and Collections
Willett’s work belongs to collections worldwide, the CEO of Nike USA purchased 30 of her works for his prestigious collection. In 2016, Being3 Gallery invited Willett to take part in a residency in Beijing, culminating in a solo exhibition.Nascondere
