Each painting in Sarah Cooney's practice occupies its own internal sense, nuance and rhythm. Through orchestrating visual components, colours and shapes she aims to extend subtle ranges of marks, events and repetitions through paint.
Hers are slow paintings that require of their audience a close up and considered way of looking. The time that goes into the making is later made explicit in the act of viewing. How the paintings formulate and register is crucial to the intent and experience of the work.
