Sarah Eddowes’ work explores the object as a static imprint of a process of transformation. Coming from a background in animation, she is interested in showing direct movement in her animated work and the extension of this to the implication of change in the static object.

Despite the abstract nature of the imagery, it alludes to certain universal processes of change, notably those of the geological and the bodily. The translucency of the wax recalls bodily textures, the organic shapes resemble cells, organs or bruises, and the pervading colours of pinks and cool turquoise are rooted in the tones of the body. Elements of geology such as structural shifts and faults, layering and compression of sediment are also recurring visual features.

The process of slicing is a prominent theme, both as a method of transformation and as a means of revealing a specific view of an object’s interior, much like a geological cross section or a magnetic resonance image (MRI). This process is similarly employed in animation and cinema where an illusion of motion is created by revealing one image at a time. In this way, her static work may be seen as cinematic objects.
