Sarah Kudirka

Art

The art I make is focused on the shapes and edges of stuff, things I am fascinated by, including: cities, buildings, furniture, words and objects.
My work is distinctively low-tech and characterised by obliterated, incised, scratched, scraped and layered paint surfaces, often painted over Polaroids.

Part of my childhood was spent in Kenya, and my work is still informed by the intense sensations I felt as a wee girl in the wide, colourful Rift Valley and vibrant, bustling Nairobi. Visiting the Olduvai Gorge dig site in Tanzania where the earliest human remains had been found, implanted in me the idea that we are outlived by things; belongings we choose, make, inherit, or pass on, and that our very bones will after all become simply artefacts from a life.
