Sara Marlowe Hall | Nature Studies

Nature Studies is a series of drawings, paintings, and sculptures by Sara Marlowe Hall made during her residency at Salmon Creek Farm in Albion Northern California. The works are studies based on fallen leaves, forest debris, trees, mushrooms, sky, dried owers, bridges, and driftwood from the landscape around her.

Hall is a British artist based in Los Angeles. Her abstract work is inspired by landscapes around the world. Every day while at Salmon Creek Farm, she drew from her desk, watching through the paneled windows as the light moved through the redwoods, and walked the varied landscapes of the coastline. Back in her studio, Sara expanded 5 drawings into large scale mixed media paintings that carry on the continuous process of study of forms in nature.

The drawings are made on cotton torn paper using pastels, watercolor and charcoal. Their wooden frames take the viewer into the perspective of the artist looking out the cabin window. In addition to the drawings and paintings, Sara made sculptures from the materials she collected and archived, elements of the land where the work is based.
