About

Sarah Grace Harris has over twenty years experience within the visual arts both through practice and teaching.

 

Sarah is a collector. She collects objects and ephemera along with a plethora of related stories some truth some imagined narrative. Process and ritual are employed to enable the exploration of these objects. Experimentation is vital and mark making in its broadest sense provides the tool to search and discover ways to document, catalogue and interact with these objects unfolding layers of narrative.

 

‘It is of the essence of life that it does not begin here or end there, or connect a point of origin with a final destination, but rather that it keeps on going, finding a way through the myriad of things that form, persist and break up in its currents. Life, in short, is a movement of opening, not of closure.’
