From Absorb to Zoom: An Alphabet of Actions in the Women's Art Library, my site-specific installation of digital prints with content derived from the Women's Art Library, is now on view at Goldsmiths College from 2 - 30 March 2015. Join me for the opening reception on 7 March from 2-4 pm, in the Special Collections Reading Room in the Rutherford Building.
In tandem with the project, I am inviting selected artists with documentation in the WAL archive to send me images of recent work to feature on this project blog.
Sarah Medway is an abstract painter, with a "passion for the Natural World." She describes her practice:
I spent my formative years on the north Norfolk coast where my perception was flooded daily by water and wide skies.

Coming out of the Northern Romantic tradition, I work intuitively, often by starting a painting with an all over colour and building up layers with an assortment of brushes. I use oil sticks, often as a 'drawing element' but also to create patches of colour which I soften with a rag.
