“I am inspired by moments that evoke a feeling in our everyday lives,” says Sarah Clinton. “I am always drawn in by the stories that are behind an image and I have increasingly realized how important art is for recording and reminding us of the feelings and emotions we have from the many moments of our lives. We all take photographs, but most end up remaining unseen in online repositories. Art is a way of sharing and connecting not only with ourselves, but also with others. The ability to both capture and connect is what makes art so powerful and inspirational.”
Sarah is attracted to things with a history and a back story. “I love old tattered books that have been written in, and maps that are falling apart, and often collect these to use in my work. Recently, I have started to create paintings that weave in physical mementos saved from an experience or a time and place connected to the subject of the painting. They are a sort of 'time capsule on canvas'. For example, I painted a scene of a village in Ireland I had the fortune of visiting with family and incorporated ticket stubs, maps of our journey, and excerpts from tourist information from the trip. From afar it looks like a regular painting but when you get close you see the details are made up of these keepsakes.”
Listening to my family laugh together.
Anytime an unexpected hiccup leads to a new discovery.
My daughter went through a phase where she loved teapots. We sang the teapot song and she would constantly ask that I whistle like the teapot we have. I now can whistle exactly like that teapot.
