Art 2013 - 2015
Saren Dobkins’ latest exhibition is a lyrical yet introspective exploration of her unfolding journey. Integrating three aspects; Sexual politics, Head Space and the Pursuit of Courage, these bold, narrative paintings use metaphor to explore how our inner realty impacts on our outer world. Her strong colours and sculptural form are influenced by her African childhood, with a recent trip to the Arava Desert, Israel playing a definitive role in awakening a new approach to representing space and subject matter. The paintings are a fragment captured in time, as her poetic, emotive figures express a sense of self, as if caught unawares.
