Sara Dare is an abstract painter. She primarily works on a large-scale using paper, linen and canvas, combined with a range of mediums informed by finish and viscosity such as ink, oil, emulsion and acrylic.
Dare’s paintings seek to convey an initial playful interaction with the viewer followed by a sense of unease or tension.
Dare is also concerned with the environment surrounding the works and the conversations between them. She consistently works on several pieces as a series and actively encourages a dialogue and visual interaction that connects and holds them together.
Sara Dare is based in West Sussex and has sold work to collectors internationally
Sara Dare graduated in Fine Art Painting at The University of Brighton in 2008. In 2010 she received a Postgraduate Certificate in
Education of Art and Design and focused on absorbing these methodologies into her approach as a socially engaged artist and
collaborator. She recently studied on the Correspondence Course at alternative art school Turps Education.
