Curator's Eye

Sarah Bird creates meticulously crafted works of geometric abstraction that - through the use of collage and laying of different mediums - blur the line between second and third dimensionality. Combining crisp, architectural lines with a balanced, earthy colour palette, Bird distorts notions of reality, physicality and the digital realm, whilst highlighting the tension between interior and exterior, the personal and universal.

Adding to cart… The item has been added

‘Pixel’ represents a fragment of a whole. This is one of a series of works that explores how we interact with our environment in an increasingly digital world. Inspired by architecture,  the image is made up of minimal photographs that have been digitally reduced to block colour, then collaged by hand.  The combination of digital and haptic processes and the use of wood for natural warmth reflect our engagement with the spaces we inhabit.

Medium: Collage on cradled birchwood panel with archival gloss varnish
