This exhibition focuses on Sarah’s life drawings, etchings and collages juxtaposed with objects from nature, history and the home, in imaginary miniaturised rooms. Many of the objects and materials have been given by other artists with whom she has an affinity. This includes those given by the daughters of the late Eve Penn who, over thirty years, privately created a post-modernist model house based on an award-winning design for social housing in St Marks Road, Notting Hill, by the architect, Sir Jeremy Dixon. Domestic Pleasures at The Open Dresser provides an opportunity to exhibit work that references Sarah’s investigations into the model house and its maker.
Sarah is a printmaker, assemblage artist and curator. She works at Ochre Print Studio in Guildford @ochreprint.
