Biography

Sara Huxley is a contemporary painter, based in Warwickshire, who creates mixed media paintings and has a particular passion for collage. Huxley skillfully weaves her fine art textiles background into her paintings, creating a tapestry of colours, textures, and patterns. 


Artist Statement

Sara's works are a celebration of mixed media, utilising layers of acrylic paint, inks, and collage crafted from printed newspapers. The result is a rich visual experience that invites the viewer to explore the intricacies of each piece. Inspired by the conviviality of dinner parties, fine dining, social gatherings, and the joy of shared meals, Huxley finds her muse in the world of gastronomy. Her subject matter predominantly revolves around still life, offering a semi-abstract interpretation of moments in time. Her paintings aim to encapsulate the essence of time passing during an evening soiree, a lively dinner party, or the intimacy of a family meal, such as breakfast or an informal lunch. Huxley works by building up layers, each contributing to the overall narrative of the piece, and her paintings are only completed when the artist feels the essence of the moment has been captured. A lover of colour, Huxley is drawn to warm palettes, infusing her paintings with a vibrant energy that reflects the warmth of shared moments. Fascinated by the imperfect beauty found in organic shapes, Huxley intentionally paints pots and bowls with irregularities, adding a touch of authenticity to her compositions. She is drawn to using negative cut outs created by her cutting out the positive shapes, the two enhance each other’s effect and reflect the passing of time. Huxley's paintings are a down-to-earth celebration, inviting viewers to connect with genuine moments of connection and enjoyment and to appreciate the beauty found in life's imperfections
