From the sensuality of her “flowers”, to the whimsical and playful nature of her overripe and luscious “girls”, Sarah Bishop is an acclaimed artist with constantly shifting registers of colour, boldness and form. Her work is of deep dramatic palettes with boisterous yet graceful lines, and a remarkable density whether she is working in oils, acrylic or pencil. Sarah has had many solo exhibitions in regional Australia, Sydney, Hong Kong and one in Shanghai . Sarah has established a loyal following in Australia and Asia. This year she returns to Sydney in October with her latest works – The Horse.

Inspired by a lifetime working with horses, and a childhood mustering on horseback in the Upper Hunter region of New South Wales, this stunning and classical series of pencil drawings is an unapologetic tribute to the power, grace and commanding presence of these extraordinary animals. Her artistry comes into its own as she captures the exquisite form, the twitching muscles and the symbiotic relationship between horse and rider. The paintings in this latest body of work reflect the joy, frivolity, colour and sleek forms that decorate the horse industry.
