Sarah Kudirka

Art

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

Part of my childhood was spent in East Africa, and my work is still informed by visiting a dig site where the earliest human remains had been found in the ’70s. It left me with the positive idea that we are outlived by things; the ordinary belongings we use, choose, make and inherit or pass on that link us to place, time and culture.

What we take with us and who we leave behind
