Sarah Trundle is an artist working in painting and mixed media, producing energetic abstractions that combine bold planes of colour with textured elements and moments of line art.
I like the pastel colour palette that features in many of Sarah’s artworks. The artist often creates a cohesive, analogous colour scheme for her works, layering shapes and marks in darker and lighter shades of a similar hue. The artist’s use of charcoal and graphite to create snaking, narrow-line figures sits in contrast to these paler colours and builds up a sense of depth in each artwork.
Sarah’s still-life and floral artworks take a similar technical approach, though in these pieces there’s more of a focus on figures. The artist’s figures have a childlike sense of immediacy about them -- most are bare sketches layered with flat colour, with a consistency of style that solidifies each piece as well planned and intentional.
