Sarah Robson has been a practicing artist for over 30 years, exhibiting nationally and internationally, with a practice encompassing painting, sculpture and installation. She has been awarded several major public commissions and is represented in public and private collections in Australia, Europe and South America. In 2013 she completed a Master of Cross-Disciplinary Art & Design and in 2015 a Master of Philosophy researching creativity and its processes. In 2021 she completed a Doctor of Philosophy examining the relational, tangible and intangible properties of non-objective (open) artworks. Her research demonstrated how artworks are not inanimate props but vital participants in the creation of meaning and contribute to our understanding of the contingent, complexity of the world. Her most recent body of work employs industrial felt, fabric and cotton twine to construct a vocabulary of forms that do not have a fixed mode of display. These artworks position, philosophically and practically, the rational and the organic side by side and nominate aesthetic experience as a complex of mind/body engagement.
