Residency at the New Art Gallery Walsall
Words from the gallery:
Artist Sarah Byrne talks about her residency at The New Art Gallery Walsall, which took place in the Artists’ Studio from 9 May – 26 June 2022. This film was shared across the Gallery’s digital platforms on Friday 24 June as the residency came to a close. In the film, Sarah shares the photographs that inspired her studio work and her material responses to them. Of the residency, the artist commented: 'The last seven weeks have whistled by, offering a fleeting combination of learning, sharing, playing, confiding and feeling. I've loved every single conversation that's taken place, and I'm so grateful to everyone who has popped into the Artists' Studio to share this with me. This residency has marked a pivotal point in my practice - it facilitated the realisation that two important parts of my life could come together as a body of work. And it validated the joy I find in examining crochet - a recognisable, relatable, homely activity - under the lens of a contemporary artist.'
