Underwater paintings

Sarah Harvey was born in London in 1981. She completed her education at Chelsea School of Art and Newcastle University, graduating in 2004. She confesses she is influenced by Francis Bacon’s paintings and Jenny Saville. She studies and she is very into representing the human flesh and the effect of distorsion. She tries to focus on the light and color effects and she plays with these in order to create interesting paintings in her studio at the Bow Arts Trust in East London. “Entirely suspended by the water, the human forms are fragmented by the ripples and swirls created by the water, abstracting them, and often with implausible results such as the appearance of disfiguration or distortion. “
