Sara Jayne Harris is a visual artist and lecturer living and working in the UK. She has a special interest in figurative representations and investigates themes concerning identity, temporality and rituals through her multidisciplinary practice. Since relocating to West Sussex she is transfixed by the county's sublime landscape and is currently discovering its wealth of historical data from the 'South Downs to the Sea'. She is currently documenting a sense of place through textiles, prints and paintings.
The figure, landscape and temporality are key themes explored within my visual arts practice and it is this interest in the human and place which drives the desire to connect and communicate ideas with others. The two aspects of my practice, art and education, are inextricably linked and important to me.
Inspiration for the works evolve from a multitude of sources, especially the quotidian, the everyday we all encounter. The practice is not contained to one material or technique. Freedom is sought through artistic discourse and play.
