Sarah Woods

Sarah Woods is a graduate from Falmouth and is a painter and printmaker documenting the landscape through concise mark making either in monochromatic, etchings or atmospheric semi-abstract paintings.

Biography

Sarah Woods is a based at Trewarveneth Studios in Newlyn on the South Coast of Cornwall. Her collection of etchings brings focus to the process of making, repeating a single movement to represent minimal and balanced observations. Sarah's paintings also focus on the notion of repeating a single mark. A methodical process reflects the structure of printmaking, visualising the landscape as areas of light and dark.




The lines of an etching signify something meditative in the landscape. Each print begins with a sketchbook drawing that is slowly worked into an etching and printed to a limited edition in the studio. When working with a plate my practice of printmaking focuses on the movement of ink and direction of hand-drawn lines, becoming familiar with the marks unique to each piece.- Sarah Woods
