Biography

Born in Worcestershire, Sara Hayward is a UK based artist. She studied fine art at the Ruskin School of Drawing & Fine Art, Oxford University, and printmaking at the Royal College of Art, London.

 

Sara finds inspiration from her travels abroad to the coasts of Europe as well as closer to home on the shores of Great Britain. Sara's artworks include abstract pieces, still life, seascapes as well as portraits.

 

Her expressive, painterly style is concerned with capturing the energy of her subject matter using a heightened colour palette and printmaking inspired mark making techniques. She has developed a personal use of heightened colour to represent the world around her, pushing the boundaries of traditional painting through printmaking inspired painting processes.

 

A suite of her still life etchings of Worcester Porcelain jugs and her portrait of BBC Antiques Road Show presenter Henry Sandon MBE hang on permanent display at the Museum of Royal Worcester. She is married to landscape painter Paul Powis.


Artist Statement

The human form is central to my current practise with female figures a present focus. The series Elle 1:1 000 000 celebrates and debates the female form and the inner strength of women around the world. The images are predominantly taken from newspaper cuttings with real life, distorted by media interpretation, given a vibrant captivating existence.


 


Working in a semi abstract way images gradually emerge and minimal detail is included with ambiguity essential and energetic mark making vital to the image making process. Fast-drying acrylic paints allow layers to build up and working on multiple images I move through a series of images simultaneously to retain a freshness and immediacy.  I like to use a limited palette and incorporate printmaking techniques into the paintings which are constructed using stencils and layered mark-making.


 


Using a limited palette a woman is described, portrayed in just a few deft painterly brushstrokes. Sensitively executed, she represents contemporary woman with no facial features necessary. Painterly brush marks are juxtaposed against hard edged brush marks and the negative spaces around the figure are given equal importance in the handling of paint which has been used expressively to capture the moment. The incidental mark making in the background give an energy to the “portrait”.
