SARAH KINDER

Sarah Kinder is a London-based artist channeling a more conceptual and creative approach to styling by blurring the boundaries between mediums such as photography, film and painting, producing large-scale painting installations through the use of digital media.

“I believe that as a contemporary creative it is important that my work reflects issues and current affairs, responding to the world we exist in. My current focus ‘Project Projection’ looks at a fresh approach to styling as a direct response to the fast-paced fashion industry and our increasing consumption of digital content. The work projects cutouts of garments taken from runway shows onto the body, allowing the clothes to go straight from show to model.”

Coming from a Fine Arts background, her work at the Royal Academy of Arts in London has influenced her creatively and informed her practice. Here she met, and subsequently became muse and model to, both painter Ken Howard and her partner and collaborator Michael Brunn, whose drawings of her we see pictured in this series.

“I enjoy the act of collaboration; it’s important to trust creative relationships which can birth many ideas.”

She says that not having come from a traditional fashion background and being somewhat naïve to the fashion industry has actually been a blessing, giving her more creative freedom.

“My style values are about being selective, trusting my own vision and although nothing is really original anymore, everyone has their own language to express it in.

For Sarah, beauty is about vulnerability, rawness and empowerment. “When you work with nudity in a project, it often brings a vulnerability and realness to the work - It creates a trusting and more intimate relationship with your subject, which captures a powerful yet delicate and sensitive image.”

She uses clothing like a second layer of skin, as a form of expression to enhance the natural, raw beauty of the body.  

“I see the body as an art form, a human canvas - we exist as our own greatest work of art; physically, emotionally, mentally working on ourselves from the moment we start to explore and find our place in this world.”

“I am curious as to how being a first time mother will affect my work, and whether my new perspectives as a parent will change the way I choose to show the human form, and how the issues reflected within my work will change as my priorities shift. I’ve learnt the importance of trying to stay in the present moment and not think too much about the future. Life is about balance.”
