Stableyard Gallery: Working Progress by Sarahjane England
Working Progress is Sarahjane England’s first contemporary exhibition displaying a series of contemporary mixed media paintings, monoprints prints and relief prints. This exhibition is a free event and runs from 5 November to 29 November 2018. Open daily from 10am to 4pm.
Sarahjane has been exploring different ideas to create her first solo exhibition: The importance of taking inspiration from the outside world and looking at how designers and creative people get inspiration from natural world to produce their artwork. Also thinking about the joy of being outside and the importance of allowing yourself to unwind, reboot and reflect.
Every colour used in this exhibition has been seen by Sarahjane in Morden Hall Park over a year of visiting the park. Nature plays an important part in her art practice taking inspiration from colours found outside.
This exhibition is a Working Progress reflecting on the importance of self-improvement, having fun and taking care of your surroundings.
