My name is Sarah Malone, I am a Visual Arts educator and a contemporary artist living and working in the Southwest of Western Australia. For as long as I can remember I have loved being artistic. I have worked in a variety of contexts including; drawing, painting, photography and graphic design. As a result, I am always experimenting with new techniques, materials and technology to enhance my practice.
My working style has evolved over the last few years as I have developed a love for working in an intuitive, dynamic and flow driven practice. I explore the fluidity of natural landscapes; how they are forever moving, changing and evolving. I examine the interrelationship between water and earth; how running water erodes and carves into the landscape and natural spaces are formed in nature, by nature. Inspired by my aerial observations, captured photographically for reference, I have been working with a variety of media to create delicate layers that interact to form earthly textures and tones that reflect the Western Australian landscape.
Living in the Southwest of WA undoubtedly offers an inexhaustible source of inspiration. I look to reflect my surroundings and love for my environment through my work.
