Sarah Carvell: Gwaith Newydd | New Works

11 October - 4 November 2020

Sarah's show was meant for last Spring, but was paused right at the top of the inbreath! Now here it is with more works made over the unusual summer…A joyous and beautiful aria of a show.


This is a very bold and accomplished collection. Her control of the paint and the palette knife is clear and very impressive. With quick simple strokes, and bright strong colours she gives you all the detail you need and all the excitement, and always so elegant and economical. Her townscapes speak of community and continuity, her interiors illuminate relationships and her landscapes are restorative and thoughtful.


We see an artist revelling in the beauty and balance and harmony around her. She makes it all seem effortless, easy and right. But of course it isn't, it is a great achievement. This combination of simplicity and virtuosity is quickly marking Sarah as one of Wales's most exciting artists.


Sarah was born in 1964 and brought up in Llannefydd. After training and working for a while in England, she returned to North Wales, initially to teach, and then to focus on her painting.
