Drawing in the Air: Botanical Studies
30 September - 28 October 2023
Guest Artist Sarah Luxford
Artist Sarah Luxford draws in the air with a single, unbroken line of wire to create beautiful, elegant sculptures that resonate her passion for the natural world. Her intricate compositions illustrate not only her dexterity, but also her insightful eye and attention to detail. Sarah's creativity reflects her vision of the endless potential of using a single medium. Whilst the interplay of light and shadow adds depth and dimension, breathing life into her sculptures.
Sarah uses soft iron wire in gauges 0.5mm down to 0.2mm to form her sculptures. After building her delicate tiny pieces, she sprays them with a matt black paint to prevent rusting. The work is presented on gesso canvas in simple white frames to protect the work, whilst not detracting from it.
We are delighted that Sarah has created a new collection of botanical studies for our exhibition Drawing in the Air: Botanical Studies
