Sarah Grace was born in 1990 in KwaZulu-Natal and schooled by artist parents Janine & George Holloway. Sarah has explored the human tendency to find shared meaning in the artifices we create – in order to support the myths or beliefs that bind us together. The artist is fascinated by the tension between our synthetic lives and the natural eco-systems that initiated our existence, finding a connection with a form of storytelling that predates civilization. Her choice of medium, technique, objects and subject matter was inspired by mythological symbolism and study at multiple scales of the ecological universe. The work celebrates the beauty of nature at these levels, embracing the connection between real and imaginary life forms.
