As an artist, I’m fascinated by memory and how it shapes our identity. Over time, your mind can play tricks on you: reformulating what a loved one looked like, romanticizing past relationships gone sour, and preserving parts of memory in little packages. My work aims to impress upon the viewer what could be perceived as the radioactive byproduct of an idle mind that has been producing faintly recalled images for far too long.

Unable to discern facial features from the metaphysical qualities of a person, the overlapping colours and gestures call to our own internal facial recognition processes. As you lose sight of what a person looks like, your mind simply begins to fill in what could have been through a form of psychological portrait. My work particularly plays with the idea of muddled psychology with the hint of facial features visible beneath the clouds of colour and fervent brushstrokes. Read Less

Sára has been creating artwork her whole life, and her journey is only just beginning.

At a young age, Sára was inspired to create by the world around her. An introvert, most summer days were spent drawing on the patio or with her nose in a book full of fantastical adventures. Imagining her own world became an integral part of her artwork, piecing her own surreal imagery together with fragments of dreams, desires and the living world around her.

Taking these two passions with her in later years, Sára graduated from Vancouver Island University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English literature and fine art. As her artistic skill has developed, so has her passion for learning. Sára graduated from Emily Carr University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Fine Art degree, pushing her artwork further than ever before.

Sára aspires to work in art education and art therapy, believing strongly in the theraputic qualities of artwork getting those who have suffered psychological trauma through the darkness into light.
