Sarah Hogan inhabits a small and leafy corner of the world, surrounded by bright lights and piles of sketches.
Inspired by old VHS tapes, Sarah creates tiny perfect visuals and splashes of colour in an otherwise dull world. Inspired by the recent vapour-wave flow of minimal aesthetics, Roman and Grecian sculptures, Sarah uses her background in graphic design to add a new element to these works.
With technical precision that could cut like a knife, one can’t help imagining what Sarah’s sketchbooks would be like, perfect tiny illustrations of plants and grids, and experiments in typography. Taking images like a sunset and a globe and stripping them back, she calculates the most important elements of an image and presents those, giving a raw outline of a familiar object.
And the best part of all? Sarah Hogan is just beginning. She is a young, burgeoning artist, and she has so much further to go. She has so much more to create, and we will be with her every step of the journey.
