Ripples and Swirls

Painting by Sarah Harvey (5)

Most of Sarah Harvey‘s paintings are self-portraits. She aims “to create paintings that arouse both a sense of well being and pleasure, whilst simultaneously suggesting notions of insecurity, fantasy and sexuality. Entirely suspended by the water, the human forms are fragmented by the ripples and swirls created by the water, abstracting them, and often with implausible results such as the appearance of disfiguration or distortion” [1]
