Sara Lee has long been drawn to the changing qualities of light, air and weather. These new monoprint series, Swathe, Outlook and Vantage, reference the compelling, yet illusive, line of horizon viewed across water. Her quiet images invoke a sense of calm. They invite the viewer to pause and contemplate the importance of landscape and our profound relationship with it, especially at this time of ominous environmental change.

Each monoprint is hand-coloured using gouache and are made using techniques borrowed from the Japanese woodblock tradition.

Sara Lee predominantly works with drawing and print, including woodblock in the ukiyo-e tradition. Her practice involves working from site-specific landscapes, followed by extended studio-based work. Her images are a response to the ephemeral nature of landscape and our profound relationship with it, especially at this time of ominous environmental change. She exhibits widely and her work is held in public and private collections internationally. Born in Wales in 1956, Sara Lee studied Fine Art at Ravensbourne and Print at Central School of Art. She lives and works in London.
