Printmaker - Sarah Vigliotti
Sarah Vigliotti (Sarah Hooson) is a printmaker and photographer based on the outskirts of Cambridge.
Born in London but later growing up in rural South Cambridgeshire is perhaps why she enjoys the city and countryside in equal measure and finds inspiration in both.
In 2014 Sarah began producing lino cuts using a small etching press in her studio. Her love of drawing is reflected in her style of lino cutting and many of the mark-making decisions are left to the cutting stage, working with the lino in a spontaneous way. She enjoys the risk and uncertainty involved in working with lino and the excitement of the print revealing itself.
Her work is inspired by an interest in urban and rural landscape, history and the passage of time. Taking spaces that may often be overlooked, she focuses on pattern, texture, surface and detail. The human figure is normally absent from her images, although there is often a strong suggestion of its presence, just beyond the frame.
