Sarah O’Brien’s practice is a process based one, focusing on drawing and installation. O’Brien is currently developing a more diverse interaction with specific spaces expanding into a more sculptural language. The work is intended as a series of spatial and tactile suggestions.

Using lo fi materials and working with specific spaces and architecture she hopes to achieve theatrical drawing/sculptural installations. The simultaneous independence and co dependence of the work within its surrounding environment raises questions of homage and equally of futility. The materiality strives to imbue the viewer with a sense of the tension between light and weight, coloured and black.

Since completing her Masters in Fine Art (NCAD 2007), O’Brien’s practice has focused on drawing based installation. She has taken part in a number of group exhibitions around the country which has seen some of these site specific works take place (Tulca ’07, Galway, Backwater Artists Group Site Specific Award Cork, BroadcastHere, Dublin). Sarah had her first solo show at Pallas Contemporary Projects (PCP) in May 2008, Very Common Glory, and recently exhibited in the Douglas Hyde Gallery group show, Holding Together. She is currently based in West Cork.
