Sarah J. Stanley

Sarah J. Stanley studied Fine Art at Gray's School of Art in Aberdeen and is now based in Glasgow. Sarah's creativity is diverse to say the least, her work adopts a variety of mediums, surfaces and subject matters. All of which share Sarah's decorative style and somewhat dark sense of humour. She has been well received across the UK and Europe and as a result, gained an international audience. Sarah is currently creating work for her forthcoming exhibition in Berlin. 

"My current work retains strong elements of drawing and painting alongside a varied set of mediums and art pieces, creating a delicate formal balance of mark and imagery as well as employing text and invention. Often I display tendencies towards the satirical, and steering away from irony and it's other shallow counterparts, I take the proverbial piss with sobriety. I work with space, context, depth and all the other basic things fine artists consider day to day. I like to disband the semiotic and symbolic, making sure the viewer can experience some sense of disciplined wit. The readily unspoken, fiction-like, but tediously honest nature of my work, I hope, leaves it capable enough to describe itself earnestly within quips of discerning visual banter and with the integrity of a studious prankster."
