  • Artist’s Statement

    Toowoomba-based artist, Sarah Walker, has been honing her skills with acrylic paint since 1999. Originally inspired by the use of Spiritual fruit in Christianity, Sarah continues to use fruit as her main subject, both as an object and as a symbol.

    Her semi-realistic style of still life has touches of humour inspired by surrealism as well as a unique, bold use of colour. Walker has been exhibiting in the local region and beyond since 2017.

  • Influences

    Colour, lots of it. My imagination, and the thoughts within. I love the work of Jeffrey Smart, he takes the everyday mundane and injects colour and whimsy into it, I love that. I love Dali's strange ways and worlds as well. I love to bring colour to people's worlds, whether a lot or a little, helping people to step out of their comfort zones is definitely a big influence in my work. Deconstructing random maths and biblical concept crossovers is also another pet enjoyment for painting ideas.
