Sarah Foat graduated in 1998 from Bath Spa University College with a degree in Fine Art. She then ran her own art gallery for 10 years, exhibiting and selling contemporary art and craft alongside her own work. Since returning to her practice after becoming a mother, she is now pursuing her passion for abstract painting.
Artist statement: "My recent paintings are inspired by a piece of graffiti that I regularly walk past on the school run - in particular the layers of previous graffiti tags, vivid colours and beautiful close up compositions. I use acrylics to explore textures and colours reminiscent of graffiti, with a continual process of applying and removing paint in order to reveal glimpses of previous layers. I enjoy experimenting with mark making and investigating contrasts, not only with colour but also texture, tone, line and space. I hope in some way to capture my vision of the beautiful essence of graffiti in my paintings."
