‘Moving forward by looking back: Memory, Nostalgia and connection to place’ 

Recurring Event see all

June 9, 2024 @ 10:00 am 1:00 pm

T.Arts Gallery presents a new solo exhibition ‘Moving forward by looking back: Memory, nostalgia and connection to place’ by contemporary artist Sarah Lugton. 

Sarah Lugton (born and raised in Bathurst) creates contemporary abstract paintings from her studio gallery in Williamstown North, land of the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin nation. She has a Bachelor of Arts, Jewellery and her Masters in teaching. As a self-taught painter, Sarah’s compositions use shape, line, colour, texture and value to create a visual language that conveys emotion and meaning.  

 Sarah is an intuitive painter who describes the process of mark making on canvas as “flowing through her rather than from her”. Nostalgic memories, personal experiences, music, literature and people in her life fuel her work. She internalises these aspects of her life and imbues them with meaning and emotion. She then translates these onto canvas with layers of colour and movement with gestural brushstrokes. Remnants of her life influences can sometimes be seen in elusive shapes and patterns in her work, creating a symbolic language, a personal dialogue between you and her. Sarah hopes to create an intimacy in her work where you feel drawn in and see a part of yourself reflected in the work.
