Sarah Pooley
(click image to enlarge)

Sarah Pooley’s paintings can be seen as a study of arti cial simulations through the exploration of social spaces and their use of industrialised technology.

e creation of consumerist social space deliberately aims to manipulate experience through the use of architecture, elaborate interior design and arti cial lighting to a ect visitors. Technology is increasingly present within these social spaces. Sarah’s work depicts this as a type
of simulation of both experience and socialisation. e compositional elements within the paintings consist of geometric abstraction examined through perspectival and spatial illusion, amplifying the artificial colour harmonies in order to describe this experience of hyper-real environments within the space of the canvas.
