"I’ve always wanted my work to read like an experience or a distant memory. My work consists of layers, made up of small and large abstracted markings and small colour fields, that together produce a larger feeling. I pull these markings from everyday patterns and textures I find in the world. Simply put: I equate this process to read the way a run-on sentence might present itself or a scene might unfold.
Over the past couple of months, my studio practice has gone through a period of new discovery and I’ve been creating work that is less layered, giving more focus to isolated shapes and markings. New work where visual markings are less calculated, but instead emphasis is placed on the action of creation. In doing so I hope the viewer can trace the path of creation and may experience the emotion that was put into the work.
I look forward to pushing my studio practice and exploring where this small pivot takes me." (Sarah Delaney about her new body of work 2021)
