About The Artwork

East is one of the artist's favourite sets within her series City.Skies.London comprising sixteen original paint + Polaroid* images. (This collection of 16 images is considered by the artist as a single artwork within the ongoing series City Skies London, started in 2012). The artist cannot reliably recall where she took the original snaps to make these images. Maybe this is the film from which the prints went black overnight and left her with deliciously blank/dark frames to work with. To her these images are a reimagined version of the Bethnal Green area (where her work studio is) that intentionally reference Hanna Barbera "TopCat" cartoon backdrops. *the artist uses the Polaroid equivalent films, produced by the firm Impossible HQ, in her reconditioned Polaroid camera. NB This artwork has been exquisitely framed (by Darbyshire) under highest conservation standard museum-quality glass

Sarah Kudirka (nee Davenport) is an award-winning contemporary British artist who makes art about the shapes and edges of things: buildings, cities, objects and words. An artist producing striking and mature work, she brings both passion and playfulness to her work. Sarah's paintings are made by using oil paint and pencil applied directly over Polaroid shots that she has taken while walking through cities. The idea is simple: walk and look up at the sky in between the buildings. The resulting art is compelling. She reimagines the city streets and skyline in paint and pencil on Polaroid scale, never copying the photo obliterated beneath. Her series 'City Skies London' now numbers over 400 images and they are available both unframed and in exquisitely framed grids. Just a couple have been enlarged and are offered as limited edition prints. Sarah is now also working on series about Berlin, Glasgow, Hong Kong and Sydney. The artist is inspired by all sorts of stuff to do with material culture; street furniture; the built environment; urban landscape; design; language and architecture. Characteristically lo-tech and handmade in aesthetic, Sarah Kudirka's work is regarded as technically-innovative, accessible and beautiful.
