Sarah Brasier b. 1990 Ballarat is a current Gertrude Contemporary studio artist (2020-2023). She is interested in friendship as a creative motivator and aims to build a supportive community of people in the art world. Each of Sarah’s paintings might be viewed as a still frame from a life-long revenge tale, punctuated by moments of despair, happiness and simple pleasures. These psychodramatic scenes incorporate astute observations, absurdist thoughts and draw on personal histories.m employing bright colours and humour to offset the work’s often dark origins. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Art and graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2018. She also holds a Bachelor of Applied Science. In 2017 she completed a year of study at Joshibi in Tokyo after being awarded a prestigious New Colombo Plan scholarship by the Department of Trade and Foreign Affairs.
