About The Artwork

A characteristically vibrant but subtly colourful set of original paintings within Sarah's series City.Skies.London comprising sixteen oil paint + Polaroid images presented in a vertical grid. (This collection of multiple images is considered by the artist as a single artwork within the series started in 2012). The artist makes two different sets of paintings within the series City.Skies.London, divided by the film stock which either presents her with a pale or a dark background that shines through the pencil marks made through the oil painted surface. These images are made on the 'pale' film stock, hence the title of this particularly colourful piece. 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.
