Dancing Shadows is a series of artworks by Sarah Annand following the release of her Shadow Lines textile collection. The collection draws inspiration from the silhouettes, shapes and shadows of the High Court of Australia and The National Gallery of Australia. 

The Dancing Shadow collection pushes the boundaries of Annand’s usual work. She has played with colour and texture in a way that brings the geometric constructions to life. The titles of the works are linked to the time period of architectural inspiration: David  Bowie songs released during 1972-1982, the decade in which the Brutalist icons were constructed.

About the Artist

“Colour to me is emotionally driven in its application and how I receive it. I’ve always leaned towards muted and limited colour palettes as I find colour such a powerful tool - I’m drawn to interesting juxtapositions of colour over large areas. Colour has the ability to change the meaning of a work and evoke an individual's response towards it, with even one slight contrast. 

I approach colour as a means of expressing how I’m feeling. I don’t often think too much about it or plan my colours when I’m painting, rather I see what I’m drawn to as I reach for the brush. My colour combinations happen in that moment. Colour to me is the addition to my work that connects me to the time and place of its creation.”

With over a decade in the Textile Industry following a background of art and photography study and practice, Sarah established OAT Studio. Her designs are influenced by architecture and our built environment. In her practice, she dissects the shapes of building facades and creates new architectural compositions with the fractured images. 

After relocating to Canberra, Sarah was immediately inspired by the incredible Brutalist modernist structures throughout the city. From photos and paintings to architectural structures, Sarah creates designs for fabrics with a thoughtful colour palette.
