Sarah McDonald: Travel Diaries - Art Collector

Through this body of work, Sarah McDonald revisits the urban landscape through her travel experiences over the last decade, with a new approach. These bold, semi-abstract oil paintings make reference to the urban environment, the domestic, the global world united by universal themes. Some graphic elements, partnered with vivid abstract fields of colour and energetic mark making, draw the viewer in and connect with people. Street scenes, urban walls, graffiti, signage, traffic and the buzz and energy of places all over the world. McDonald has captured these subject matters by creating a variety of surfaces, layering paint and embracing the “accident’. She explores the paints physicality, allowing the work to develop and change throughout the building process.
