Sarah Ross: “all & sundry”

oil paintings by Sarah Ross 

Oil paintings take on a new light in this collection of “scenes, objects and creatures that give meaning to my world”. The artist says “The more I paint…the more I’m interested in the synaesthesia of light and emotion.  Take over-bright light, for instance, how its cold intensity can express with painful accuracy a sense of dislocation, anxiety and depression–Edward Hopper comes to mind.  These days, I am so interested in light that I have taken to breaking it up.  You can see puddles of light on a deck or shards of it in a person’s face. Light painted on the floor of a wooden bridge, behaving like mercury.”
