Sara Twomey Paintings
I want to find my own language of painting and have it caught within the paint and captured on the canvas. The material of the paint itself is important to me, with it I can experiment with colour and form disappearing into light. I want to capture atmosphere and emptiness and make it concrete.

Artist's Statement:
I want to find something beautiful in the ugliness, almost fleeting like a memory of an imaginary landscape. One that comes from the everyday landscape like the generic parts of town on the edges of the city. The Non places of wastelands we ignore and pass by.
