An artist concerned with human inter-connectedness, and the interplay between the personal and the universal as expressed though the material of pigment, the colour in her work sits with a specific symbolic value. She starts with the way in which pigments leave material colour across human history and geography leaving traces of our interactions. Working in collections, the material research projects she chooses have resonance with the now.
The work in this collection uses pigments from the earliest of times, the beginnings of human culture, and asks contemporary questions about how we make decisions in the dark. The form of the work is abstract spaces to fall into.
She makes oil paints by hand from the relevant pigments. She is a graduate artist who went onto study traditional Chinese ink painting in China, for two years under Ding Laoshi in Jiangxi. She has been selected for a number of juried exhibitions in the UK and abroad. Sarah Needham exhibits across the UK and in the US, Germany and Romania.
