Sara Maher

A Hobart based artist, Sara works in large and small dimensions across painting, drawing, sculpture and installation. Since completing a DFA at the National Art School in Sydney (1995) and an MFAD at the University of Tasmania in Hobart (2005), a succession of residencies in remote Tasmania (and a connected residency in Broken Hill, NSW ) have been highly influential.

Sara seeks a language to describe the variance she feels between resonances that evoke an expansion of “being” in place, and atmospheres of unsettled memory where layered histories intersect. Each piece is a meditation on materiality and a subtle metaphorical response to place and its energies, generating an aura of spatial illusion.

A recipient of Shotgun and a finalist in numerous national art awards – including Hutchins Australian Contemporary, City of Hobart, Tidal, Burnie Print Prize and Bay of Fires – Sara’s paintings featured recently at Sydney Contemporary. She is presently creating an installation toward The Biennale of Australian Art Festival (Ballarat VIC). Sara is represented by Bett Gallery, Hobart.
