Sarah Long is a practicing visual artist in Co. Cork, Ireland. She is a recent BA (Hons) Fine Art degree graduate from Crawford College of Art & Design. She was Project Intern at Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre for the Coming Home: Art & the Great Hunger Famine- related exhibition. In September 2021, she will undertake an MLitt in Art Writing at Glasgow School of Art.
Long’s work is concerned with the idea of the landscape as a receptacle of human ideas, a place where nature and allegory are intrinsically intertwined. She explores these ideas through painting, drawing, sculpture and art writing. Her work reflects on the influence of Irish history and literature on the collective perspective of the landscape.
‘… asks us to think afresh about landscape and draws us into that vital process by which art inscribes a natural world never less than fully material. Her own materials don’t stand at a remove from the material world that Long represents but rather index it in delicate, subtle patterns of expression.’
