Marrying old with new, Sara employs traditional printing techniques such as etching, drypoint,
embossing and silkscreen printing to produce contemporary and original images. Her works capture
a delicacy and subtle beauty of line, pattern and palette. Juxtaposing architectural drawings or
photographs with fine patterned fabrics and elements of the figure, Sara’s work is graceful and
sensitive. The carefully composed layers of ink amalgamate to produce remarkably sophisticated
images.

This time, we have selected three series of Sara’s works for this exhibition - Corsets, Chandeliers and
Johnson Road:

Corsets were born out of a scrapbook of beautiful old lace samples given to Sara by a friend of her.
Sara wanted to give the rectangular shaped samples a new lease of life and used the fabric to make
collages of corsets from which photo etchings were produced. Sara was interested by the idea of
making something new out of something old. Some of Sara’s Corset prints were used by trendy
Japanese fashion label FurFur as a textile design for their SS09 collection.

Chandeliers are what Sara describes as “negative etchings” where she drew the chandeliers with
pens that would resist the acid and etched the background as oppose to etching the line of the
drawing. This technique brought the work to life by introducing a sense of light passing through the
objects.

Johnson Road were inspired by photographs Sara took around the bustling and busy streets of Wan
Chai, Hong Kong. These beautiful hanging lanterns caught her eye amid the character filled streets of
the district.
