Sarah Martin Skype Conversation at RAYGUN

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Last night we streamed Sarah Martin onto the wall at RAYGUN and spoke with her about her work via Skype. Sarah described the ideas behind her body of work  ‘Stories of Desire’ which is on show at RAYGUN. Sarah’s explanation of the work was highly personal in that she discussed a raw honest foundation which has formed the basis of this series of work. Sarah explained the culture of the deep Southern American Baptist and the strict discipline and expectations held within her family which directly influenced her upbringing and therefore work. Sarah discussed the influence on her work through a push against and away from this with her time spent at Graduate School at Yale and after that New York.  Sarah explores her very aware and almost non objective relationship to her upbringing through her work through ‘Stories of Desire’  which investigates themes such as living for dying, a longing to keep friends close, to be accepted.  The conversation was wonderful with a few new faces and everyone asking questions resulting in stimulating healthy dialogue.
