Sarah Kate Wilson
Past John Jones Artist-in-Residence
An abstract painter, Sarah Kate Wilson had a vision for the project space, to fill it with joy and happiness. Literally - she installed two swings, a ball pit and incorporated helium balloons, glitter and streamers in an exhibition that featured installation work and paintings.
"The opportunity to work alone in the studio but have on hand the professional skills of the staff force at John Jones has been incredible; ranging from the conservation department to the artists surfaces team. I plan to visit the gilding department over the coming weeks to watch them at work. As my work contains many mixed materials I am always looking for new processes and application of materials to incorporate into my work."
