Sarah Mifsud, a twenty-one year old aspiring artist of Maltese nationality, obtained her educational certification through several national institutes. These include the University of Malta, the Institute of Art and Design through the Malta College of Art, Science and Technology, together with obtaining standard national examinations prior to her tertiary studies.

Her interest in the arts ignited through her first year at MCAST, studying for a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design, which later led to the completion of a Higher National Diploma in Fine Arts. Following her scholastic achievements, Mifsud went on to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree (Hons) in Fine Arts and a Master of Fine Art in Digital Arts. In addition, Mifsud has also completed a course in Graphical Design through the Institute of Computer Education Ltd. (ICE).

Throughout her years as a student, Mifsud has worked on several personal commissions, both in the digital and the traditional sector. She has also been introduced to the profession of teaching, through teaching art at summer schools in the summer period. To date, Mifsud is currently employed with a local art shop promoting art material. Mifsud has also exhibited her work in several local exhibitions, with her latest and most aspiring project exhibited in June, 2015 at St.James Cavalier, Valletta, Malta.

My current studies aim to develop and test the idea of combining tactile painting with digital animation, through exploring the nature of flows. For my recent projects, the engagement in an artistic exploration identified the characteristics of each medium independently, together with recognising the effects they have on each other when viewed side by side.

Prior studies play an important role in my artistic research as they offer a descriptive amount of information to historical achievements gained throughout the history of the arts and demonstrate development as time progresses. By reflecting on literature, an outline of achievements throughout Abstract Expressionism are expressed, which highlight the importance of the tactile and humanistic elements dominant throughout the period. In turn, these qualities developed with the introduction of technology within the arts, presenting a deviation, leading to a concern for the intangible and reproducible elements that the digital medium sustains.

To date, rare systematic investigations have considered the juxtaposition of tactile painting and digital animation, making my studies furthermore significant as I aim to put this concept to test. Subsequently, my work proves that the unification of these two contrasting media can generate new ideas within the art scene, shedding new perspectives to experiencing an artwork.

Contrary to one’s expectations drawn from Walter Benjamin’s work, my art intends to shine a positive light on digital technology, proving that it can be used as an enhancer to traditional art rather than a destroyer.
