Sarah Cliff's work explores the uncanny of the everyday, the domestic and the bodily. Through the layering of form with content, nature with artifice, threat with humour, Cliff playfully interferes with familiar images to evoke contradictory sensations and dislocation. Ambiguous characters, historical narratives and iconic symbols, invite the viewer into a mysterious yet often brash theatrical setting where conventions are questioned, consensus is challenged and curiosity is deemed a necessity.
Sarah Cliff is a tutor at Ochre Print Studio, Guildford, where she was Artist in Residence throughout 2018. She was awarded an MFA with distinction, University of Sussex, in 2017.
