Belgrave St. Ives solo exhibition imminent.

I had a lovely studio visit from Michael Gaca of Belgrave St. Ives, a top Cornish gallery. Arguably the best. He drove all of the way from west Cornwall to west Wales to view and select from my series The Intimacy Of Liminal Spaces.

The result is a Sarah Poland Solo Exhibition at Belgrave St. Ives in November 2016.

Good news.

MFA exhibition Aberystwyth School of Art – in the exhibition space

.

Trying to decide which paintings to put in and in which order.

It is as much about the space as it is the paintings, not simply a matter of putting in the favourites.

Catalogue Artist Statement

One of the things that makes painting distinctive is how the perception of time is evaluated: its histories can be visible and at the same time all are firmly in the present. In painting I want something of the immediacy  of drawing: its explosiveness, brevity, rawness and also a type of mark-making that is not consciously directed and informs both the beginning and the final stages of making an image.

We share a liminal existence: occupying a position at, or on both sides of a boundary or threshold. Experiences offer many thresholds between the physical and transcendental, thought and realisation, present, future, past.

Nature can give us moments of poetic experience.  I seek to explore the possibilities and impossibilities of expressing these liminal moments in paint.
