SILVER MAGPIE (SARAH POLSON)
My art is a collection of intuitive thoughts, ideas, experiences and feelings, gathered from, my own life , and borrowed from others stories, that I see and hear, as I journey through my life.
The pieces I create are a collection, of “things”, gathered and re-used. My work grows instinctively, through working with my “collections”.
I use a wide variety of mixed media to create my visions. I enjoy working with collage, mosaic, and recyclable materials, to form 3 dimensional, as well as 2 dimensional, pieces.
Texture, colour and energy, dominate my work. I enjoy using words and poetry, mixed amongst imagery, as a way of portraying powerful emotions.
I am inspired by opposites and extremes, such as: angelic spirituality/ macarbre darkness, dreams/nightmares
.I will continue to explore these themes through my art.
