Art Residency 2021

Presence and Absence – work in progress 

by Sarah Taylor

Sarah Taylor passed her Fine Art Foundation with Distinction in 2020. At the age of 56, Sarah has waited for forty years to take a Fine Art Degree and is now studying  at Glasgow School of Art. This is her debut solo show and the culmination of a ten day residency in an empty office space in central Exeter, from 10th May.

The residency allows Sarah to explore the boundaries of found objects by looking at the interconnectedness and relationship between materials, process and object. Critical to her practice is the idea of rhythm and reiteration, creating images whose space and depth have an ethereal quality, evoking a deeper subconscious form. Allowing this exploration in a different physical space generates new openings for Sarah to explore and respond to new conversations through reflection and interpretation.

The show of works developed during the residency: “Presence and Absence – Work in Progress” will open by invitation from 5pm to 8pm on Thursday 20th May and then to the public until Friday 28th May 2021 (from 11am to 3pm daily). Please contact the artist to pre-book a viewing time if possible.
