Sarah Purvey
Rhythm is a work on paper by Sarah Purvey. An expressive, layered artwork which demonstrates the maker’s intensely physical relationship with her work. Each piece carries a charged connection to time and place as Sarah explores personal and emotional landscapes. Whether working with clay or on paper, Sarah uses movement to illustrate her energy and convey character. Floated behind non-reflective glass to allow the edges of the paper to be seen, this is a wonderfully eye-catching piece, full of depth.

The work is drawn and painted onto the paper, building in layers, during a very physical drawing process. No two artworks are ever made the same as Sarah uses instinctive movement to create her gestural pieces. The drawing is made from acrylic paint, Indian ink, chalk and pencil.
