Sarah Arsenault is a British/Canadian artist based in London, UK. She is a semi-abstract painter who explores human ecology. Her relationships within the environments that she experiences and the interconnectivity that exists among all things are the prominent themes she explores. Her work interprets her view of the world and is underpinned by a keen awareness of the climate emergency. Sarah's paintings oscillate between abstraction and representation and are based on reality, memory and imagination. She views her practice as an ever evolving journey, each piece having a connection to those that will follow and those that came before. Imagery from past work is often manipulated and reconstituted in new work.
Sarah's work Erasure was selected for the RA Summer Exhibition 2022 and she was a top 18 finalist in the Beyond Future Art Prize this year, for a selection of her work that explores climate change and sustainable living. Her work Anticipated can be seen in an upcoming American TV series titled Slip, airing this fall on Roku channel.
