Sarah Tilley

Original oil paintings

The starting point for my work is usually my own photographs of places I have travelled to, sometimes incorporating found images and referencing the work of other artists and film-makers. During the making process these references become partially buried under successive layers of paint, sometimes re-emerging in an altered state, sometimes leaving only a trace of their original form: My intention is to capture a sense of the places I am painting and without being over-literal, to evoke visually the texture of a memory.

The ancient Himalayan Kingdom of Upper Mustang, western Nepal is a starkly beautiful, dusty land of wind-eroded cliffs in earthy shades of rust, ochre and slate. Sparse clusters of crumbling mud houses and Buddhist Temples, in the same hues, appear to emerge from and melt back into the earth.
