All That Glitters ran in conjunction with the 2015 annual London Affordable Art Fair, where Sarah was showing for the third year. It was at the private view to launch the All That Glitters exhibition that Sarah launched her fourth screen-print, which incorporates 24ct gold leaf and dyed silver leaf.
Sarah’s figurative fine-art pieces capture the sensuality and elegance of the female form. The All That Glitters collection showcased her classic style, but with an enticing modern edge. The collection included hand-finished variable editions using metal-leaf, silkscreen and enamel. Also included were originals that combine pigment and charcoal media, which, along with the use of high contrast lighting, give the pieces a great sense of drama and atmosphere. The pieces in the collection varied from bold images to softer, more delicate and yielding shapes.
All That Glitters presented our clients with a first chance to see Sarah’s new-style works which combine traditional life-casting with her new mixed-media approach. Life-casting is the process of creating delicate, 3D pieces through the use of molding and casting techniques; the result is a high level of detail and realism. In All That Glitters, Sarah constructed dreamy and elegant surroundings for these life-like pieces using various materials including metal-leaf, enamel wire, pigments and resin.
All That Glitters opened with a private view at which Sarah Scotchman joined us to discuss her work with guests.
