Sarah Lorrimer-Riley is a contemporary British artist. Her work has been exhibited widely, including The Royal Academy Of Arts 2022, Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair 2022 (where her piece was selected as a Top Pick by artist Gavin Turk and Fair director Lizzie Glendinning) and the Royal Cambrian Academy. She has work held in collections both nationally and internationally.
Sarah works across a number of disciplines and is best known for her colourful and energetic abstract paintings and playful digital collage work.
Her painted pieces celebrate the discovery of beauty in unusual and unexpected places. She is particularly interested in exploring the relationship between the natural world and one’s own internal landscape, how our thoughts, feelings and inner dialogues are reflected in the environment around us.
Her digital collage pieces are characterised by the playful layering of photographic elements, creating a bright, bold and sometimes unsettling alternative reality. Sarah's work invites the viewer to explore and question the narrative in focus, holding a magnifying glass on to modern British Society. The dreamlike quality of her work creates a balance between the real and the surreal, transporting us to different, times and places. A step through the looking glass. Using a combination of photography, digital art, paint, inks, and collage she layers together tableaux designed to take the viewer on a journey into the unknown.
Sarah is based in South Oxfordshire.
