Sara Roberts practice is an investigation of beauty, time and memory where truth and fiction, real and imagined are intertwined to create a new reality. She explores photographic traditions including portraiture, still life, and landscape.
More recently, Roberts has been drawing upon on her own experiences to explore these themes, investigating her mixed Welsh and Turkish parentage. It is through them and the family’s rich history of storytelling that she investigates her place in the world and the dynamic of western and eastern culture.
Alternating between abstraction and representation, her pictures are made in the crisp style of commercial studio photography. Her compositions balance the real and the abstract which creates a dynamic interplay between surface and depth.
