Artist Statement

Sarah Louise Hawkins is a Manchester-based artist working with painting, drawing and sculpture.

Her current practice is predominantly concerned with exploring the numerous patterns and configurations which appear when repeating and disrupting systems of shape and colour. She is interested in the spatial and optical experiences created, often playing with visual perception and making work with constantly changing compositions within the viewer's line of sight

There is a symbiotic relationship between the sculpture, painting and the works on paper; they inform and inspire each other, with recurring patterns and motifs appearing and transforming in a multitude and myriad of ways.
