Sara Dobson, 2012
Sara Dobson's practice concerns the hybridization of different components into surreal formations and narratives. Resourcing from a self compiled data base, Dobson carefully dissects the visual information and reconfigures the fragments by using the technique of collage. The deconstruction and reconstruction implemented through collage, gathers aspects of subconscious thoughts, spawning new ideas and concepts. The stimulus created by the collages are extracted and transformed into drawings. The language of drawing with its adaptive nature and representational qualities is an ongoing fascination for the artist. She is currently exploring the combination of these mediums into installations, researching how different environments alter the perception and content of the work.
