My large Ink drawings which I have named Wirehead's, have evolved from a long history of sketching. I call it structured improvisation; a combination of uncontrolled and controlled chaos with some identifiable characteristics. They represent the energy of thinking and subconscious mind in movement and in the moment.
I am interested in the discipline of simplicity. Over the past two years I have been exploring a more minimal, surreal style as an extension of my other work. What I have realised is that it is easier to fill a space than to leave it empty, but both spaces are equally important and must be balanced carefully. By stripping away the unnecessary, presenting a scenario in a simple manner can give the audience space and a greater freedom to create their own story.
Sarah Albisser’s background as a contemporary dancer and choreographer has had a powerful influence on both her life and her art. She is fascinated by movement and self-expression, which over the past decade has resulted in a collection of striking black-and-white portraits of female faces.
Devoting herself to a unifying theme for so many years has enabled her to explore and experiment with various techniques and materials, including pens, acrylics, perspex and thread. Her art captures form, feeling and evanescent moments in time, and she often leaves a section of the canvas unfinished for the viewer to complete with their own interpretations and imaginations.
Sarah has had exhibitions of her work in Switzerland, New Zealand and
Here artworks are now held in private collections around the world.
