The Lightbox gallery and museum is pleased to present ‘Taste of Art’, a display of work by local and regional artists. Changing monthly, the ‘Taste of Art’ features established artists, all noted for their quality of work. ‘Taste of Art’ strives to offer an exciting mix of paintings, original limited edition prints, textile and mixed media work.

All works on display are available to purchase from The Lightbox Gift Shop, where there is also a large selection of unframed work by the artists.

The current Taste of Art features the stunning photography of Sarah Dennis:

Sarah took her first steps towards becoming an artist by completing a foundation course in art and design at Brighton City College. She is influenced by storytelling and from a young age drew inspiration from her grandfather's collection of old books and Japanese artwork. Sarah has always possessed a strong desire to create a world of her own, fuelled by her love of nature, animation and her own personal experience.

In 2008, Sarah completed a degree in illustration at the University of The West of England, where she developed her drawing and applied her skills to children's books, editorials, designs and animations.

Her work now combines traditional scherenschnitte (paper cutting) with collage. Sarah's pieces exemplify the beauty of nature in fairy tales and whimsical childhood dreams, telling classic poems and folk tales through the medium of paper. Each piece is individually hand-cut using a craft knife to reveal exquisite, delicate detail within the illustration.

The works for sale here at The Lightbox are high quality giclee prints taken from the hand cut originals.

Sarah Dennis’ work will be on display in The Lightbox Café from 3 March – 12 April 2015, all works on show will be available to buy.

A wider selection of work by Sarah and other artists are available for purchase in the Shop’s browser.
