Sara Borga

Sara Borga works mainly across drawing and printmaking, combining traditional and digital processes in order to generate a comprehensive discussion around the issues of climate and landscape. Her work often relies on aquatic imagery and themes such as imagined landscapes, which she thinks of more abstractly as reminiscent of bodies of water that both divide and allow transportation of ideas, individuals and commodities between peoples and structures.
Borga has been drawing analogies between these questions and socio-political factors and finding ways in which the causality between them might be established. She materialises these issues by alluding to both natural phenomena and anthropogenic disasters in uncanny and sometimes violent but also lyrical landscape constructions. She received her MFA in Fine Art Media from the Slade School of Fine Art and her BFA in Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts of Lisbon.
