Sarah Farndon

Biography

Sarah Farndon’s sculptures are an exploration of the human face, it's imperfections and myriad expressions. By illustrating both the grotesque and beautiful Farndon seeks to show the innate beauty of the human visage. Farndon primarily works in polymer clay which allows her to create new and challenging techniques. The interaction between viewer and sculpture plays a key role in her work. Through these interactions the sculptures gain meaning by forcing the viewer to question the human condition and imbue the artwork with a sense of history and humanity.
