The evening will reveal how the theme of arable landscape underlies Sara’s practice, as inspired by the brightly-coloured and linear landscape of Nottinghamshire where she grew up. Fascinated by the ways in which this landscape changes throughout the year and alters the volume of space she explores how coloured lines affect the appearance of space and form. Sara has created several collections, including Equilume, Pulse and St. Ives, which consider colour theory and the notion of changing form through colour.
Sara Moorhouse studied Illustration at Wolverhampton in 1993 where she specialised in Children’s Books. She then undertook a PGCE in Exeter and taught art for 6 years. In 2003 she joined a Masters programme in Cardiff where she developed her ceramic practice and also wrote a PhD about the ways in which colour affects the perception of three-dimensional ceramic forms.
Working towards a South West where talented artists thrive, and a resilient and connected visual arts ecology that inspires more engaged and diverse audiences to value and advocate for its work.
