Sarah Foat

I graduated in 1998 from Bath Spa University College with a degree in Fine Art.  I then ran my own art gallery for 10 years exhibiting and selling contemporary art and craft alongside my own work.  Since returning to my artwork after becoming a mother, I am now pursuing my passion for abstract painting.

My recent paintings are inspired by a piece of graffiti that I regularly walk past on the school-run, in particular the layers of previous graffiti tags, vivid colours and beautiful close up compositions.

I use acrylics to explore textures and colours reminiscent of graffiti, with a continual process of applying and removing paint in order to reveal glimpses of previous layers.  I enjoy experimenting with mark-making and investigating contrasts, not only with colour but also texture, tone, line and space.  I hope in some way to capture my vision of the beautiful essence of graffiti in my paintings.
