Critical Practice

Sarra Grillo-Henry is a multidisciplinary artist whose current works focus on consumerism alongside the current pandemic's constraints.

Sculpture is an art form that begs to be viewed in person - to be seen from all angles; every perspective and truly realised by the viewer. The undisputed need to study from home has made this impossible and has, in turn, converted sculpture to image. This is not the intended form of the works.

Some works have been photographed in panorama mode to allow the viewer to see more than one angle within a single photograph. Although this is true to a certain extent, it has also distorted the photographs. An attempt has been made to give an authentic and immersive view of the art but this attempt at a more global vantage point only succeeds at reflecting the frustrations that arise in this virtual existence.

Her work is usually about balance and stability but is now unstable - a contradiction in terms which reflects how she feels in these current times.
