"My art work began and continues to be distinctly expressionist, sometimes in a very naďve way and others not so much. It expresses my pain in a very harsh way. I also joke about it by using sarcasm and irony. For me painting is exclusively cathartic. It is the most direct way I find to release the urgent need I have to express myself. My feelings accumulate inside my soul as if it were a container, until it coats and spills on the canvas, wood, paper or any other material that can keep them and in this way contain me. I paint on canvas, wood, paper, cardboard or any other material which is at hand. I prefer oil-painting but, as I mentioned, any other material which I can make use of is welcomed. Many times I write words and phrases on my paintings, which I feel I need in order for the work to be completed.
I also like to stick personal items in a collage way, such as: cards, medical prescriptions, bottle tops, letters or pieces of them, notes, photographs, tapes, book covers, book pages and other things that are important to me (for example: a lock of hair of my dog or even my own blood).
My entire work expresses my inner world and the one surrounding me(in the sense of things that are physically in direct contact with me).
Well… What else can I say? I think that my paintings have their own language and speak for themselves. An art critic referred to my work in this way: 'Sara speaks with her heart and paints with her speech'. This is the best way I can define my work."
