Sara Owen

Available work


Sara Owen’s paintings are carriers of sensation, containers of feelings and emotions in response to landscapes experienced, a relationship with people, events and things seen. 

She uses the known qualities of the experience against the unknown qualities of the memory.  Memory is subjective, insubstantial and filters a seen image that is further interpreted through imagination and colour.

Sara Owen is particularly interested in the edges where colours meet and overlap to create shallow space so that with thin glazes, and the geometric structure of the Golden Ratio, these are a metaphor for the moving threshold between the conscious event and the unconscious emotional response, balanced in the act of painting.
