Sarah Jane Brown's work upcycles driftwood, metal and newspaper. Her delicate small sculptures start with the driftwood which forms the landscape and onto this she add houses and trees soldered together from metal and wire. Newspaper foliaged trees too appear in her tiny scenes of homes and plots. An interest in scale and proportion is evident as tall trees overshadow diminuitive houses and stretched washing lines span the space between distant trees.
Each piece of driftwood is selected for its particular shape and feel and the unpredictability of her material means that each piece is unique but clearly recognisable as her work.
