Passion, sacrifice & love

Sarah Ollerenshaw is currently exhibiting in a two woman show at the Seascape Gallery (Godalming, Surrey).

The Gallery says that this is "a contrasting exhibition by Sarah Ollerenshaw and Sally Firino. Sally's work uses a single line to portray a place or a moment in time leaving space for the viewer to fill with their imagination, whereas Sarah's powerful images encourage the mind to think about passion, sacrifice and love."

Sarah's paintings, they suggest:

"are contemporary and yet they communicate a sense of age together with a timeless impression of sacrifice, hope and, fundamentally, of love. Sarah builds up each canvas layer by layer; they are then partly gilded before being waxed to a high finish. They are framed simply in white so as not to detract from the beauty of the work."
