SARAH SCHROF born 1984, Reutlingen lives and works in Stuttgart
After my studies at the State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart, my work as an artist focuses on the processual translation of emotional reactions to nature. Growing up in the Swabian Alb, surrounded by nature, this symbiotic relationship has accompanied me since childhood.
In my artistic practice, I explore these intertwined relationships between invisible and visible worlds. Organic and compliant materials, which have their origins in the textile context, give my work sensuality and agility. This adaptability emphasises the constant change that is in the nature of life. It serves as a medium for me to enter into dialogue with inside and outside, made and given.
My modelings of colour and form are interpretations of natural systems such as cloud formations, landscape phenomena or lichen organisms. I apply alchemical principles by preparing pigments, dyes as well as extracting and preserving substances of living and non-living origin with their intrinsic properties.
