The Artist - Sara Ingleby-Mackenzie
Sara has been creating unique sculpture since 1982 when she graduated from the Bath Academy of Art, where she was awarded the Henry Moore Foundation Scholarship. Eschewing the modern art teaching which had become the mainstream she was delighted to have the models of the life room mostly to her self, and there to develop her drawing skill and to capture the art of line and movement which underpin all of her work. Building up her pieces in clay over a steel armature, Sara’s work is mainly cast into bronze, and she patinates each piece uniquely in rich colours to suit their characters. Her witty and glamorous ladies are at home in most settings. They are dressed to kill – or at the very least to create an impression. Are they waiting for a lover, or perhaps a secret meeting? These ladies exude confidence, elegance, and style: they take no prisoners and aren’t to be messed with. Their colouring and clothes, shoes, and hats are key to their characters. Sara’s pieces are widely exhibited in galleries in this country and abroad and she has undertaken numerous commissions for both private and corporate clients, ranging from the Mayflower’s Edward Winslow stepping ashore on to Plymouth Rock for Droitwich Council, The Airline of the Year Award, Diving with Dolphins for the Nordic Swimming Federation, and many others.
