Sarah Rowe

Sarah Rowe is a Melbourne based artist and established textile designer. Her recent return to painting has been much welcomed by Boom. Throughout her career, Rowe has demonstrated a strong interest in the relationship between, design, space and expression. Her recent works demonstrate her ability to seamlessly translate this interest from one form to another. Through her exploration of the paint medium Rowe brings together abstract forms and contrasting colours in a painterly style, to produce dynamic works that portray softness and depth simultaneously.

“I have returned to painting after a very long time away from it. My main bread and butter is in textile design which I also have a great love for and often, my inspiration and motivation comes from interiors and textiles. My work centres around colour, shape and pattern and how they interact with each other. I experiment with combinations of these three basic elements to create an expression of myself. I favour the use of strong colour with impact, I like contrasts. The forms I make are often juxtaposed against each other into an abstract landscape or an aerial view composition, occasionally there are figurative elements. As I’m also a textile designer, I find it natural to collage and layer paint in a fabric-like way. I use oils because I think the colour is better and I seem to enjoy the creative process more when I use this medium”
