Sarah Cowan

The materials I use are graphite, pen and ink, charcoal, wire, and cut paper.

I am drawing my life: my past and present experiences in an attempt to expand knowledge of my body in space. My practice explores the ever-fluctuating disconnection and integration between physical, emotional and spiritual planes.

To force myself to move beyond my physical and emotional boundaries, I work on surfaces larger than the scale of my body. On smaller paper I make marks with the intention of creating form within space. I work intuitively, allowing the composition to define itself through the marks. The process, the intensive labour involved in creating the works allows me to be present to the ebb and flow of these states of being.

I am developing a language that is engaged in asking the question of 'where do I end and others begin'.
