Sarah Isherwood

Wimbledon trained artist, Sarah Isherwood, comes forth bearing embroidery threads, silk-screen printing and oils to explore the fragile world of memory, experience and prescription medication.

Crafted on silk and muslin, Isherwood uses a range of materials - paint, thread, charcoal, and even vegetable oil - which she uses to leave deliberate stains - marks on her work, to reference the figurative ‘stain’ left behind from prescription medication. Sertraline - (trade name Zoloft) is the most commonly prescribed mood stabiliser in the UK and is distributed to patients in a yellow, turquoise, and white box. We find this motif referenced throughout Isherwood’s work, together with her emotive, more visceral oil stains and charcoal marks which propose a counterpoint to the surface treatment. Poignant, powerful and slightly unnerving, her work describes a true and terrible beauty, these are real and raw - a new perspective.
