Hello, you have arrived at my old website. To see my new website please go to http://www.sarahgittins.net
Sarah Gittins is a visual artist working across a variety of media, with a particular focus on drawing and printmaking. Her work explores issues of social and ecological justice, with a current emphasis on issues of climate change, peak oil, land use and food sustainability. Sarah’s images create a space where the activities of everyday life (in western culture) encounter incidents of (global) environmental concern, bringing those issues which are often pushed to the edges of consciousness into the here and now of personal awareness.
Sarah is interested in the capacity of image-making to enable engagement, conversation and action for change. With this in mind recent years have seen more performative appoaches emerge within her solo work, and in collaborative projects made together with the artist Jonathan Baxter. Sarah and Jonathan are currently collaborating on Dundee Urban Orchard (DUO) a public art and horticulture project reimagining Dundee as an ‘orchard city’.

We watch the fire blazing,
And feel the roots of the house move, but sit on,
Seeing the window tremble to come in,
Hearing the stones cry out under the horizons.
From Wind, by Ted Hughes
