Sarah Rush - Working Practice

Sarah Dodkin Rush's artistic practice focuses on an engagement between the natural world and mankind. A skilled wood carver and abstract painter, her current work is predominately sculpture.

Using natural, recycled or discarded materials highlights man's ambiguous relationship with the environment and the natural world but from an apolitical standpoint. She draws attention to forms shaped by both man and nature creating a dialogue between the form and the medium.

By framing and abstracting natural forms Sarah challenges viewers to observe the minutiae of colour, form and texture in her materials. Working organically, play and chance influence the ongoing variables of colour and form with space and time. Many of her sculptural works challenge the preconception of sculpture as a predominantly floor-based art form.
