Typical of Sarah Maple, this work is a provocative, satirical take on a contemporary issue.
Sarah Maple is known for her bold, witty, and occasionally controversial practice. She works in a wide variety of media (including painting, photography, sculpture, collage, and video) that challenge notions of identity, religion, feminism, violence, freedom of expression and the status quo. Much of Sarah’s inspiration originates from her mixed religious and cultural upbringing in the 1980’s in Eastbourne and she often employs self-portraiture, alongside her guerrilla-style performances, as a vehicle for her narrative. Her recent practice has focused on the disturbing parallels between the political climate in the US and the UK looking at themes of fear, division, toxic masculinity, and xenophobia. Sarah often references the work of other artists in her own, especially the YBA sharp humour and satirical eye.
