FROM KOLAJ 25
Sarah Perkins: Artist Portfolio
London, United Kingdom
Sarah Perkins references fables and folklore and she combines found imagery with her own mark making and samples from art history. Pine and holly enrobe portraits of women like festive holiday burkas. Red ribbons dance around the figures whose eyes stare at the viewer from behind their floral masks. A portfolio of her work appears in Kolaj 25.
