Sarah Wilkinson

Art/Textile Exhibition

 

Sarah is an emerging textile designer, whose work has an innovative and distinctive style and approach to both painting and design. Sarah studied Textile Design for Fashion and Interiors at Bath Spa University. With a passion for colour and print, she specialises in large scale, hand painted wall and floor art with an ability to adapt her skills between painting and textiles utilising her bold designs in a variety of textile processes.

 

This exhibition showcases Sarah’s revival of 18th century oil cloth techniques, hand painting on canvass with a modern twist on an old method. Sarah takes her inspiration predominantly from human and animal forms, or intricate details from nature; translating them into stylised paintings that are rich in colour, with a playful composition and narrative.

 

Sarah works from her studio in Bristol, designing for her own brand and working on freelance projects such as the recent SS19 collection with Circleline design studio in London. Sarah’s work was featured at premier vision 2019 as part of the main fabric forums.

 

Sarah offers bespoke commissions for high end, one-off pieces. These statement pieces bring individuality and design flair to homes and offices.

 

Sarah’s exhibition Maajabu runs at the Red Brick Building from Wednesday 9th October – Saturday 30th November.

Open daily, 10am – 5pm
