Elevating and transforming the humble domestic craft of crochet to obsessive and neurotic heights, Sara Willett has created tensions both literal and psychological as the fantastical forms fashioned from stretched shirring elastic colonise and consume the space.
This new installation created for Curious Projects evolved from her series of forest web sculptures, which she developed particularly during two residencies in China. Each piece is time-consumingly made by hand.
Sara Willett works in a variety of media, including, painting, photography, printmaking and large-scale installations. She studied at Camberwell College of Art for both her BA (Painting) and MA (Fine Art). She has exhibited widely in the UK and her work is held in collections in UK, USA, Australia, Europe, Japan and China.
Her work was recently selected for the Creekside Open and she was awarded a residency in China for the second time running. Sara Willett lives and works in London.
