Sarah Hopkins Solo Exhibition
Fountain Fine Art
Llandeilo 1st - 30th April 2017
Urban landscape and heavy industry are commonly perceived as unsightly and ugly. My objective for thirty years as a practicing artist has been to challenge the ways in which these landscapes are perceived.
My new collection of work borrows from these same principles and explores the ways that farmed
land and townscapes are connected. Natural landscapes are malleable; carved and cultivated,
shaped and transformed, creating pattern and repetition that gesture to similar characteristics in
urban landscape. Using hand-printed paper and a carefully-considered palate, I have assembled
compositions that denote a familiar sense of place.
