Lorraine Sadler

T

he intricate works of Lorraine Sadler are pure poetry; borne from observations of the wonders of nature and captured as swirling, fantastical scenes that merge fact and fiction. She describes her paintings as ‘Pictorial Mindscapes’, a place where the viewer can choose to think and consider each element of the work, or simply to feel. Traces of inspiration from the artist’s former career as an aerialist and acrobatic wingwalker can be seen in the graceful figures that centre her paintings, elegantly bending and contorting often as if floating through space. Each new work is a celebration of imagination and altered perspectives. It is a strong life-long connection

to the natural world which remains at the heart of Sadler’s paintings, as she aims to inspire a deeper appreciation of our environment by merging existential philosophy with esoteric fantasy, reconnecting the human spirit with its origins within both physical and spiritual dimensions. Each of her paintings begins with a narrative driven sketch, growing with layers of symbolism as her metaphorical muse awakens; for the artist the creative process is a synergy of mind and spirit. lorrainesadler.com art@lorrainesadler.com
