Sarah's practice focuses on sustainability, aiming to live by the zero waste principles of refuse, reduce, recycle, reuse, and rot. In line with this she is rethinking her wardrobe to bring it in line with sustainable principles, and to bypass the possibility of buying unethically produced clothing that is poor quality ‘fast fashion’. Sarah creates seasonal wardrobes called ‘Fashist’ out of used stockpiled fabric from an old 2007 fashion project, as well as acquired materials from Reverse Garbage, fabric remnant shops, donated materials and wool from family and friends. Fashist will now be forever ongoing and evolving. In 2010 Sarah completed her PhD thesis, ‘New still life,’ which investigated the placement and role of still life in contemporary art. Since then Sarah has exhibited at Red Art Gallery QLD, Verge Gallery Sydney, Marrickville Garage, Articulate Project Space, 55 Sydenham Road Project Space, AirSpace Projects and James Dorahy Gallery Sydney.
