Just found these bright and summery paintings by Sarah Harvey on the Juxtapoz website. Since doing Fine Art in Sixth Form two years I haven’t really had the motivation to continue painting, especially as I’m now concentrating mainly on Graphic Design, but I still love going to galleries and hearing about new things in the world of Art.
“My paintings of figures floating are predominantly self portraits. I aim to create paintings that arouse both a sense of well being and pleasure, whilst simultaneously suggesting notions of insecurity, fantasy and sexuality. Entirely suspended by the water, the human forms are fragmented by the ripples and swirls created by the water, abstracting them, and often with implausible results such as the appearance of disfiguration or distortion.” – Sarah Harvey.
